Burkes Pass is included in Pacific Jane’s Goldfields Magic and Tiny Places – Big Stories tours.
Clients learn about musterers, shepherds and Maori travellers who left their mark on the landscape. The pass was once a passageway for pre-Euorpean Maori to the MacKenzie district and its plentiful supply of birdlife and eels in the streams.
Highlights for clients visiting the region with Pacific Jane include a heritage walk visiting the oldest Union Church in New Zealand, St Patrick’s; Three Creek Gallery, a collectables and memorabilia gift shop; a kids scavenger hunt created by Burkes Pass Heritage Trust; plus the cemetery with its stories of settlers’ lives.
Pacific Jane offers wholesale rates for retail stores.
