THE SWEET SMELL OF LAVENDER
Lauren’s Lavender Farm & Café (30 min)
This one’s close to our hearts, as we live for six months each year in France, a half hour from the great lavender fields of the Sault, Provence.
But you don't need to miss out! Just a half hour from the Timber Trail Centre, is a magical and tranquil lavender farm set in gorgeous gardens on a cliff overlooking the Whanganui River. Great snacks and drinks as well as various lavender products are sold at the café by the Farm's friendly owners. If you walk down the 87 steps to the river landing you’ll see two beautiful waterfalls. and for those who don’t want to drive, Blazing Paddles offers canoe and jet boat trips to the Farm.
