Maheno is known for its historic flour mill, Clark’s Mill, and another Heritage New Zealand site, Totara Estate. Clark’s Mill was once part of the wider Totara Estate and gives a realistic glimpse into what life would have been like
for farm workers during the 1800’s.
The original buildings have been restored to tell the stories of where the world’s meat exports began and is a fascinating example of
classic number 8 wire thinking*.
From Maheno, you can take a winding inland route to Livingstone, Danseys Pass or Duntroon. Alternatively, visitors can go out to the seaside town of Kakanui.
