Matanaka Farm Buildings

Matanaka, near Waikouaiti, off State Highway 1
Waikouaiti, Otago
New Zealand's oldest existing farm buildings. This is a Category 1 Historic Place.

The stable, storehouse, granary, schoolhouse and privy were built for whaler and trader Johnny Jones. He bought a whaling station in 1838, and when the supply of whales declined, established a farm at Matanaka in 1843 and became one of Dunedin's leading merchants.

There are interpretative panels to explain the farm's history.
