Hawera is a dairy town in the region of Taranaki, in New Zealand . It is located on the western coast of the North Island, about 40 km from the town of Opunake (it has allegedly the most beautiful beaches in the region) . Hawera boasts with several tourist attractions. One of them are the Hollard Gardens covering an area of 38,000 m2. The gardens were founded in the late 1920s by the farmer Bernard Hollard, who gave them to Queen Elizabeth II in 1982. The most fascinating spectacles can be seen here from September until November. The Tawhiti Museum is also a unique place, and it is probably the best private museum in the country. The museum acquaints its visitors with the lives of the early settlers. They can see life-sized figures made after the local residents. Hawera has a world unique: the largest dairy works in the world which produces several milk products. That is why Hawera has opened an interactive visitors centre in Dairyland showing the history of dairying. In the only rotating café of the region, visitors can taste the products of the plant. The next frequently visited attraction of the town is the water tower, from where we can enjoy a fantastic view of the surroundings, the town and Mount Egmont - the dominant feature of the region.
