Flat Hills Tourist Park

A tourist pats a friendly goat at Flat Hills Tourist Park, near Mangaweka in the Rangitīkei region. Situated beside State Highway 1, the park is a popular stop for tour buses. Visitors can enjoy farm-style food in the café, view farm animals in the outdoor enclosures, and buy souvenirs in the store.
