Chainsaw Collection

Travel writer Peter Janssen has compiled a guide to the nation’s obscure, off beat and quirky landmarks and visitor attractions that are often bypassed because they are not on the well beaten tourist tracks. The Timber Museum is one of two South Waikato attractions mentioned in the guide.  The chainsaw collection housed in the Tuck & Watkins sawmill is described as ‘impressive”. As well as “extensive displays [which] cover every aspect of timber and related industries.”
