Okere Falls

Thursday, 20 Feb 2014 | Views [183]

The day began nice and clear in Rotorua. We took our time with a long drive around Lake Rotorua to Okere Falls (based on a recommendation from the hotel landlady). The falls themselves ( http://www.doc.govt.nz/parks-and-recreation/tracks-and-walks/bay-... Read more >

Rotorua Canopy Tour

We were picked up at the motel for the canopy tour at 1145. The tour (http://canopytours.co.nz/) lasted about 2 hours with a 20 minute drive to and from. What an AWESOME experience!! We had 6 zip lines and 2 swingbridges that gave us a bird's eye view ... Read more >

Back North on the Ferry!

Monday, 17 Feb 2014 | Views [190]

We can't believe our time in NZ is nearly at an end. We've finished our stay in Marlborough and must now make the trek back north to Auckland for our flight to Australia. Where did 6 months go??? The day dawned clear and calm. We packed up the car (although ... Read more >

Omaka Aviation Heritage Center

Saturday, 15 Feb 2014 | Views [185]

We drove down into Blenheim so that we could make copies of some paperwork before heading out to the Omaka Aviation Museum. What a GREAT display! Their "Knights of the Sky" exhibition features aircraft from the dawn of powered flight to the early 1930s.... Read more >

Abel Tasman National Park

Tuesday, 11 Feb 2014 | Views [174]

We took advantage of the nice weather (and the lack of scheduled activities) to take a drive up to Abel Tasman National Park. This park is north of Nelson, about a 2 hour drive from Okaramio. The weather was cloudy with spits of rain into Nelson, then ... Read more >

Monkey Bay

Thursday, 6 Feb 2014 | Views [206]

The day was a little cloudy, but we decided to take a drive anyway. We took the advice of the salesgirl at the fruit & veg stand and went out to the Monkey Bay Walkway. It was a short half hour drive and we were on the coast in Cloudy Bay (the one ... Read more >

Maruia Falls and the Ride Home from the Swingbridge

Saturday, 1 Feb 2014 | Views [177]

After our ride, we stopped for a short nap near O'Sullivan's Bridge (about 3 km from the swingbridge). Then, we headed over to Maruia Falls on State Route 65. These falls were a direct result of the 1929 earthquake – the river was diverted from ... Read more >

Buller Swingbridge

Saturday, 1 Feb 2014 | Views [162]

Wow, we're starting our last month in New Zealand. It doesn't seem possible that we'll be leaving the country in 3 weeks. The day dawned cool and cloudy in Okaramio, which caused some concern as we planned to visit the Swingbridge in the Buller Gorge ... Read more >

Pelorus Mail Boat Run

Friday, 24 Jan 2014 | Views [237]

We both had eagerly anticipated our tour on the Pelorus Mail Boat (http://www.themailboat.co.nz/). Out in the Pelorus Sound, there are lots of people who live off the grid, and can only travel by boat to get to civilization. No roads, no electrical wires, ... Read more >

Queen Charlotte Drive

Wednesday, 22 Jan 2014 | Views [175]

Now that we're in Marlborough (our last stop in NZ – WINE country!), we took a trip along Queen Charlotte Drive, mimicking a tour we made on our 2005 trip. We stopped in Havelock to check bread in the bakery, but they still didn't have any that ... Read more >
