Although better known for poultry and forestry, the small town of Herbert, in North Otago, is the unlikely home of the largest display of pipe organs in New Zealand.

Oamaru musicologist and organ builder Doctor Ron Newton has been collecting the instruments for more than two years.

He's put them together in the New Zealand Organ Museum - now housed in the eighteen sixty six original chapel at Saint John's Presbyterian Church.
