Situated 40 kilometres north-west of Timaru, Geraldine is the archetypal ’country village’, with an attractive English-style domain, well-preserved early buildings and many beautiful private gardens, several of which are open to the public.
It is situated among sheep and cattle farming and fruit and crop growing, and hosts the headquarters for the nearby forests. The very active community supports several art and crafts ventures and over 200 organisations and clubs that cater for everything from mah jong to rugby.
Lying on the Inland Scenic Route, Geraldine is a popular stopping place for travellers to the Southern Lakes and is handy to many outdoor attractions.
