The Annual Geraldine Fete & Festival
Geraldine has been a hive of activity in November, hosting the hugely popular Geraldine Fete followed by the Geraldine Festival in successive weeks. Pretty Geraldine is renown for its beautiful gardens, and many were open to the public during the Festival. Visitors also enjoyed the he Waihi River walkway which features colourful Rhododendron dells in the centre of town and native bush walks in the Talbot Forest Scenic Reserve, the Orari Gorge Scenic Reserve and the Peel Forest Scenic Reserve. Combine these tranquil nature walks with excellent boutique shopping and a vibrant hospitality precinct and Geraldine is becoming a genuine destination in the centre of the South Island. There are many accommodation options in Geraldine but the jewel in the crown is The Vicarage Geraldine, which has been open for just one year after a major renovation project.
