Eltham

A small Taranaki town, population less than 2,000, which has not changed much so its original civic buildings have been preserved, Eltham is known as the cradle of the Taranaki dairy industry (the co-operative system in particular).

Fonterra, Collingwood Street, is the largest Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) manufacturing site in the Southern Hemisphere. Cheese from the site is cut, grated, shredded and packaged for consumers and food chains around the world, including Pizza Hut, McDonalds and Dominos

The former Post Office, BNZ building,the impressive Town Hall (built in 1910) and the Municipal building are all registered with the Historic Places Trust.

Eltham is the gateway to Lake Rotokare, a scenic, natural lake surrounded by native bush (to the east of the town), and to the man-made Lake Rotorangi.
