Little River Craft Station is a co-operative of approximately 20 crafts people from Little River and its surrounds who sell their work to the public. Most members work in the shop on a regular basis and a percentage of all sales is collected and donated to local community projects.
Housed in the historic Little River Railway Station, a diverse range of crafted products are offered for sale including knitwear, pottery, preserves, woodwork, je-wellery, gemstones, flowers, leatherwork, quilts, fabric crafts, and much more.
The Little River Branch is one of New Zealand‘s best preserved former railways. Furthermore, the Little River station has been well preserved by the local community, who have converted into a centre that sells local craft and historical items.
The platform and goods shed are still in good repair, and some metres of trackage have been installed so that a number of preserved freight wagons can be displayed.
