In Foxton, a town on the West coast of the North Island you can enjoy the Dutch culture. We passed through this town last month and had a great time.
On the left a Dutch Windmill which you can visit and you can find some information about it here
In the mill is also a small shop and of course
we had to buy some Dutch drop (liquorice)
from Petronella, an authentic Dutch lady.
Opposite is a Dutch bakery and cafe. On the back of the windmill they are building a Dutch museum which should be ready by June this year.
There are some beautiful Art Deco buildings in the street
When we walked through Foxton we had a chat with a New Zealander who invited us to his house where he showed us this beautiful Dutch organ and played for us "Tulips in Amsterdam"
This organ was made in France and owned by Perlee, an organ rental company in the Jordaan in Amsterdam. The NZ-lander had bought the organ in a bad state in America and fixed all the mechanics himself. We really enjoyed this visit.
btw we were shown another few beauties like this one. It is a Chicago coins band box jukebox orchestra from the 1950's When it plays a record the curtains open and the band starts to play. So cool.
