Your Place - Waitahuna

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 1:24 pm on 22 August 2013

Waitahuna - Valley of Water - is a small community 12 kilometres from Lawrence on State Highway 8. It came into being in the 1860s when gold was discovered. These days the locals number about 100, with many original families moving away from the district as first the gold, and then, 100 years later, the rail link to Roxburgh disappeared.
