The area was settled in the 1880’s and was quite thriving settlement caller Albertland but they eventually all drifted away to Auckland and other bigger centres. There is a museum in Wellsford dedicated to this area which is well worth a look at.
Self contained Motorhomes can stay here for free for up to 2 days but need to vacate during the day.
