Historic survivor of Kaikoura's whaling past, Fyffe House is the town's oldest surviving building.
The cottage, little altered from the 1860s. It is built of native timbers with lath and plaster walls and mud and straw insulation and partly on whale vertebrae foundations.
The house has seen Kaikoura grow from a whaling settlement through to the eco tourism and whale-sighting centre it is today.
