Phone 139M

In the 1950's and 60's, Waterfall Bay was run as a holiday campground by the Burdekin family and, before them, the Millsons.
The leaflet shown here was given to us by Olive Burdekin who believes it was produced in the mid 50's.
Not only what the leaflet says, but also how it is said, gives a lovely feeling for New Zealand in that era.
While a lot has changed since then, Waterfall Bay remains a magical and much treasured place. To paraphrase; we ourselves feel it deeply and like it well.
