New Hanover

That the village of New Hanover lies halfway between the province’s capital and the farming centre of Greytown is no accident.

It was established in the 1850s by families of German and British descent and became a coaching stop, a day’s journey from either end.

Weary travellers rested jolted bodies and wetted dust-parched throats at the Travellers Rest inn, known for many years less romantically as the New Hanover Hotel and recently lovingly restored and renamed The Travellers Rest.
