Isla Bank: People. Passion. Pedigree is open. We are still re-doing little things, but come and have a look.
There is so much to cover about the district but we didn't touch the geological side of it - the limestone for which it is named. So I found some science-oriented links to the limestone plains and New Zealand in general here:
This animation shows the break-up of Gondwana and how major parts of the South Island were under water, forming the limestone through layers and layers of crustacean life.

This link discusses the geology of New Zealand and shows also the extent of Zealandia, the continent we are part of.
And this link gives a social history of Isla Bank.
We're open Wednesdays and Sundays, 2pm-4pm, and by request. Your comments are always welcome!
