We are proud to celebrate the wonderful township that is Norsewood and Settlement in 1872-73
Welcome to our Norsewood South Heritage Village site. There is a lot going on here down on the south side of State Highway 2, possibly more than you might expect. Building on from the legacy of Norsewear, our collection of projects and characters make the precinct the perfect place to stop – or even stay!
Norsewood is the northern-most settlement of Tararua District, in the lower North Island of New Zealand. We are full of unique and creative characters that keep our small town on the map. Once you’re here there is plenty of interesting history, as well as a lot to do and discover. On this site we want to tell the stories of Norsewood South, celebrate the communities achievements, and showcase our talented locals. We are fortunate to have a wonderful archive of resources that encompass history, art, ecology, quality knitwear and good old Kiwi brands. Overtime we hope to share these resources with you both on-site and online.
