The book is a terrific collection of New Zealand eco travel experiences ranging from well-known major operators to hidden gems throughout the country.

It’ll be a great travel companion for anyone exploring New Zealand and wanting to hunt out the best eco experiences on offer.

The Colville General Store

We are a co-operative owned and run store established in 1978. Our aim is to provide environmentally friendly and organic products to our customers, as well as a wide range of non-food everyday needs. We sell petrol and related products, and stock the usual general grocery items, plus a wide range of organic and non-organic fresh produce and bulk items such as grains, herbs and spices. We strongly support our local growers, so through the summer months we have a selection of fresh produce that may well have been picked the morning you buy it.

Unfortunately the Store is no longer a Cooperative. Very sad and not sure what became of the cooperative who is now just seemingly a silent company shareholder.
Prices no longer reflect the cost of product with transport, to cover staff & keep the lights on... it's just another business with huge profit margins now.

Hi, Colville Store is shut tomorrow - 25 December 2012 - and will be open from 26th on every day through summer from 8am - 6pm. Come in and indulge in our vast assortment of bits and bobs and of course all essentials as well...

This is a great shop and well worth a visit. It is indeed an old fashioned general store, selling an amazing array of products: very practical if you are camping or travelling and need to stock up but also worth poking your nose in if you're driving through and don't think you need anything. I love the organic and local food and that it's a co-op, and greatly admire the community spirit and energy in this tiny little town. The cafe next door is now also owned by the co-op I understand -- great ice creams and home baked treats. Do stop.
