Waiau is a picturesque village with a Village Green at the heart of the township.
Well known as a great holiday spot for families, Waiau is a perfect destination for people who simply want to relax and get away from it all. You can easily watch the world go by from here.
The township of Rotherham was established in 1877 to attract labourers to the district.
Keep an eye out for the historic Watters Cottage, built by John Watters, an Irish expert wool presser in 1878, it’s been restored as a memorial to the Amuri farmers and station workers.
Both Rotherham and Waiau offer access to the Waiau River, which is brimming with trout for the skillful angler and it’s where the salmon run during February and March.
