We were driving through to nugget point and the teapots caught our eye. We did a u-turn and went back which was well worth it! Had a quick game of eye spy with the kids with the teapots and then back on our way. A quirky cool micro stop and a little donation and our kids were happy! Thank you

As we drove through Owaka, where we stopped at a chemist's, we came upon Teapotland, aka Teapot World. To be honest, I wasn't crazy about being prompted to "give" the second I stood on the property (by a sign, not a person). But there was something appealing about the collection of teapots, at the same time that it seemed weird.... More

A quirky house with a quirky garden filled with teapots and a little pond. Visiting only takes a minute of your time and really brightens up the day, hard not to smile at the giant teapot letterbox or the decoy ducks floating in the tiny pond. Apparently there are winter teapots and summer teapots... Its free take a look.

Loved this place, only takes a minute of your time and really brightens up the day. Apparently only the winter teapots are out at the moment, so there will be even more in a few weeks.

Just a garden that has obviously become a passion, all sorts of teapots put to different uses once past their usefulness. Doesn't take up anytime but is a little but of fun,

We came cross this lovely place accidentally when we visited Owaka. It is decorated uniquely with many types of teapots. No admission fee required except for little donation.

We were heading through Owaka towards Kaka Point when we spotted this unique visual attraction & had to view. A great attraction for old and young kids. Certain teapots will bring up memories in everyone.

Only found this place by accident in passing but quite quirky and unusual. They do ask for donations not quite sure for what.

Sorry but this place looks and is like a rubbish tip with a few of the items that have been thrown away put up for display. Stopped, looked, drove away. Not worth getting out of the car for.
