Matanaka Farm

Three structures on Matanaka Farm (from left to right: the granary, privy and schoolhouse), the oldest surviving farm buildings in New Zealand that are still in their original positions. Established by the Australian whaler Johnny Jones in 1838, the construction of the farm's structures began in 1840. After passing through several families, the site is now owned and administered by the New Zealand Historic Places Trust.
