WELCOME TO DEVCICH HISTORIC FARMSTEAD
One hundred years ago, in a remote part of the beautiful Kauaeranga valley in Thames, New Zealand, Simun Devcich, purchased
a block of land and created a farmstead. Simun Devcich traded with kauri timber loggers and gum diggers who lived in bush camps
in the upper Kauaeranga valley. The original trading post, its buildings and chattels still remain.
The Devcich Historic Farmstead is recognised as one of New Zealand's treasured historical sites, receiving a category one status from
Heritage New Zealand Pouhere Taonga (HNZPT) for its significant historic and cultural value.
We invite you to experience life on a genuine New Zealand farm stay.
Take in the history, relax and enjoy the breath taking scenery of the Kauaeranga Valley, its river, bush and mountain ranges.
The Devcich Historic Farmstead is a 15 minute drive from Thames and 90 minutes from Auckland and Hamilton airports.
It is an ideal base to do the Pinnacles Walk and explore the Coromandel Pennisula, its stunning coastline,
unique arts and craft scene.
Our family of 6 absolutely loved our brief three night stay. This place is something extraordinary, and
very special, with all the old vintage grapevines, historic buildings and gorgeous animals and birds. Thanks so much for sharing your piece of paradise.
