The Sights

The Avarua CICC Church is a magnificent landmark built of coral and lime and well worth a visit particularly on Sunday, for the people all attend church and the air is vibrant with their beautiful singing. The national cultural centre is an imposing island structure in beautifully kept gardens. Nearby are the old Sunday school ruins built by the missionaries, which have been renovated and are now the Beachcomber Pearl and artifact shop, and in the harbour is the wreck of the Matai which was sunk in 1916.
