“Very helpful!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2012

Lots of info available about local places . . . and some beautiful photos . . of their top 5 picks, I think. We chose one of them . . . a 10 minute forest walk . . and it was a very cool little adventure . . . drove up into the hills to an old logging settlement . . had forgotten remote places like this still exist in Kiwiland! It is called Puhi Puhi River and has a little DOC campsite up there.
