Geraldine is a pretty country town with an artistic streak. There are lots of shops featuring arts and crafts, and a range of café choices. There is also an historic trail.

Set among exotic trees the town sits alongside the meandering Waihi River. It is the heart of a prosperous farming area. But it is well known for its population of artists and crafts people.

A variety of boutique shops offering unique art, crafts and giftware populate its compact and pleasant centre. Several famous New Zealand artists hail from the district. And studios and galleries can be found to interest all artistic tastes.
