Collingwood has a post shop, a food store, 24 hr fuel pumps, a boat launching ramp, and Tinky’s Tavern. The Courthouse cafe, Ng’s new gallery cafe, and the pub are all options for foodies.
Collingwood is the home of Rosy Glow Chocolates, quite possibly one of the best chocolates in the South Island! Try them, we are sure you’ll agree.
Is it the New Zealand’s best pub? You be the judge… The Mussel Inn – Live music, good food, home brewed beers, poetry evenings and quiz nights are all part of the experience. It is said here “The only good possum is a dead possum”! Free beer in return for a tail. See their Gig Guide for upcoming entertainment: www.musselinn.co.nz
Visit the historic Old Collingwood Cemetery, whose ornate wrought-iron fences & crumbling grave-markers are scattered on a rocky hillside beside what was once the coach-road to the goldfields. Read stories of early colonial life from the head-stones. 10 minute stroll from Somerset.
