Jack’s Mill Schoolhouse

History and culture – Visit Jack’s Mill School one of the quirkiest sites on the West Coast, a historic miniature bungalow designed, built and furnished entirely by school children.

When to come: Year round
What you will experience: A lake that’s awesome for jet boating, yachting, paddle boarding and fishing – locals best kept secret for brown trout that die of old age.

Locals tip: The TranzAlpine train stops at the lake side in Moana and is a nice alternative to board the train to Christchurch a little later in the day.
