Visit the whale and dolphin fossils at the lookout near Milburn, 9km north-east of Milton. more
The lookout provides wonderful views of Lake Waihola, as well as a pictorial history of the lime and phosphate working in the area. The Tokomairiro Presbyterian Church, was built in the 1880s and is still the town's most obvious landmark. It is now a Category 1 listed building with Heritage New Zealand. The Mt Stuart Reserve, 11km from Milton on the Manuka Gorge Highway, was a popular picnic venue in the 1870s and after recent restoration is again becoming popular as a large recreational area with access to freshwater fishing grounds.
