3 reasons why you have to stop in Colville

We love Colville.  It’s a classic little New Zealand town with a whole heap to offer and none of the crowds.  Here’s our top 3 reasons to head to Colville

#1  Cockles

Yep, there are cockles at Colville in the bay (but remember to stick to the quota of 50 per day).

There is a little dirt road just past the township that will take you up to the bay where you can not only find cockles easily but the little ones can have a paddle in the shallow and safe waters.


This is where you will find the Cockles

#2 Hereford ‘n’ a Pickle

A totally awesome little store with fresh local produce and according to our kids the absolute best ice creams ever!

They sell everything – homemade preserves, amazing meat and lots of yummy things to stock up on as you head up further along the coast.

You can connect with them here…
