New Zealand Sports Hall of Fame

The New Zealand Sports Hall of Fame brings to life many of the sporting deeds of long ago ...Sir Edmund Hillary has a mountain to climb, Yvette Williams a long jump pit into which to jump, Sir Bob Charles a green on which to putt; two of the great cricket batsmen, Bert Sutcliffe and Martin Donnelly, have a pavilion from which to emerge.See the kayak in which Ian Ferguson and Paul MacDonald won Olympic gold medals, see the armguard that Colin Meads wore when he played a test with a broken arm, read the memorabilia accumulated by generations of All Blacks from the Originals of 1905 until the World Cup winners of 1987.

Olveston House

Olveston is an eloquent expression of one man's dream. A tour of Olveston allows an intimate glimpse of the lifestyle of a privileged family in the early 1900's. It reflects a lifestyle enjoyed by just a few, but represents a most important piece in the mosaic of early New Zealand life as a whole.Visitors are very conscious of the family throughout the home, enjoying and experiencing the many treasures that were an integral part of the family's day-to-day life. Olveston captures this lifestyle completely. There is no more accurate or definitive example in New Zealand.Olveston was designed for David Theomin by London architect, Sir Ernest George (1839-1922) and built between 1904 and 1906. The Jacobean style grace and grandeur of Olveston is distinguished by a wealth of decorative detail. It possessed a service lift linking all four storeys. The house was centrally heated and had an internal telephone system.
