Check out the Ministry for Culture and Heritage's audio guide to Bulls in the Video tab.
The small town of Bulls is known for its punning signs, which proclaim the medical centre to be ‘cure-a-bull’ and the museum ‘memor-a-bull’. Bulls is named after James Bull, who built an inn at nearby Scotts Ferry on the Rangitīkei River estuary. He later set up a store and timber mill around which the town of Bulls grew.
