At the top of the hill that is Tiraus main street, a brown tourist info sign points the way to the Castle. A castle in Tirau? So you follow the sign, which leads down a side road, where another sign points the way, then another, then another. Finally you arrive at the fairytale Castle Pamela!
The Castle Pamela is a fairly recent construction (the local information leaflet describes it as Medievel, but the concrete has a modern feel!) and the couple that run it have created it a 20th century Kiwi folly, which now houses New Zealands largest doll and toy collection.
Well worth a visit, especially if you have children with you.

Address: 10 Bridge Street, Tirau
Directions: Follow the signs from the top of the main street.
