The oldest house in Kaikoura, Fyffe House is also one of a few buildings worldwide using whale bones as foundations. Built as part of Robert Fyfe’s Waiopuka whaling station, its stories of whaling, Maori and European history make it a unique step back to the beginnings of Kaikoura, a place so different to the town we know today.
