    ... some of the old sites associated with the 1860’s gold rush that affected the whole area (gold had been found in the North Island as early as the 1840’s). By 1866 it was one of the busiest towns in NZ but by the end of the 60’s it was all over.

    The guided walk leaflet they give you at the Information Centre needs a bit of revamping as the map is tiny and the pointers are sitting in the middle of a street so you have no idea what ...

    ... the sunshine, we headed to the Kiwi Wildlife sanctuary (West Coast Wildlife Centre). With the Kiwi being their national bird we had hoped to see some in the wild but they are very shy, nocturnal creatures so as yet we hadn't been so lucky. The sanctuary was breeding Rowi Kiwi of which there are only about 400 hundred left. We got to see two of these weird looking birds at the sanctuary.

    We then set off down the coast to start making our way to Queenstown. It was a ...

    ... into the township of Haast. Unfortunately the road passed here was closed due to a massive rock fall/land slip earlier in the day, it was about 6 meters wide across the road and 2000 cubic metres in size which is crazy, a lady at the petrol station showed us a photo of it from the news report!! So we were stranded in the town of Haast for the night and there was nothing open anywhere! We checked the camper into the Haast Lodge motor park, had a walk around town ...

    ... all screeching and making a racket. They were fun to watch and listen to. We watched the sun go down and retired for the evening.

    In the morning we drove North to stop at a place called South Westland Salmon. They have a salmon farm and sell it fresh smoked. I bought some salmon, crackers and cheese to enjoy during our next happy hour.

    From here, we proceed to Fox Glacier. We took a small walk to ...

    ... the weather was iffy and we had a long way back. We spent 4 hrs 20 min total RT to the car park.

    We stopped at Treble Cone on the way back to Wanaka. NZ Frenzy mentioned a 1000ft waterfall near the entrance gate. His description didn’t really match what we found but I assumed he was talking about the tall waterfall on the left when we pulled up to the first Treble Cone gate (with a red sign saying "The Gate"). It just had chain ...
