Daffodils, markets and steam train rides? It must be spring! Celebrate the annual fun-filled Carterton Daffodil Festival each spring, in September.
Catch a free bus to historic Middlerun to pick a bunch of daffodils.
While your in Carterton try a horse drawn Surrey ride, pick up a bargain at the High Street markets, and check out the Big Wai Art Sale at the Carterton Events Centre. It's a giant cash and carry sale by local artists who demonstrate their craft on-site as well!
Learn more about the Daffodil Festival on their Facebook page, and what else you can do while your here.
