Kayaking/Canoeing Down The Whanganui River

Whanganui..A city with a population of around 43,000 and New Zealands third-longest river which cuts right through the middle of it. Yet, during the sixteen years that I spent growing up here I'd never known anyone to paddle down it in a kayak. Swimming at Mosquito point, water skiing and a spot of...

A Quick Trip Down The West Coast (Westport to Lake Paringa)

A few years ago, the drive down the west coast of the south island was voted one of the top 10 drives in the world by Lonely Planet. Alongside the trip around the East Cape this would have to be one of my two favourite drives in New Zealand. There is something...

Day Trip to Tumbledown Bay, Banks Peninsula

The South Island has taken a hammering in the last 4 days with what was forecast to be the worst storm in 20 years. While it didn't quite live up to it's hype we certainly saw some wild weather. There was substantial flooding around the base of the Port Hills, and in...
