Gallery treasures and honey – two hidden gems you will find in the remote village of Garston. Granted it’s not your usual combination for a business venture, but Tony and Bene are passionate about both endeavours. The Stables gallery has a plethora of pieces, personally sourced from around the globe, including Rajasthan, Europe and North Africa.
The most inland settlement in New Zealand, Garston has a population of 100 and is situated south of Lake Wakatipu. In an area famous for its trout fishing, recreational pursuits also include four-wheel-driving, farm tours, golf and tramping.
Home to the historic Naylor House, Garston has coffee, accommodation, a post office, primary school, an antique and honey shop, as well as public toilets.
The Coffee Bomb in Garston is New Zealand's most inland food truck, serving the finest coffee, freshly roasted in Southland, and an array of fresh sandwiches, slices and cakes. A great little spot to stop on your Southland travels.
