    We stayed for 1 night in our camper van.

    We arrived quite late after a long drive and received a warm and helpful welcome. The site looks straight at the falls - lovely.

    We used the small but clean kitchen for breakfast. The showers and loo were OK. We hired a kayak for an hour the day we left and kayaked right up to the falls - great experience.

    ... in the height of summer. Obviously with it being winter here it's very quiet. It was raining yet again so wasn't the best views. The afternoon brightened up though and it really was lovely. We ended up searching high and low for a shower. We managed to swindle one at the marina but we were told we shouldn't of been allowed really. We also managed to get a wash done.

    ... flat with dairy cattle or deep forest and hobbit land Middle Earth. We picnicked by whangarae waterfalls, beautiful but not as spectacular as Croatia. But enjoyed watching the children use the rope swing to plunge into the water. There were Rangers on hand giving advise about drinking enough water and using free sun screen. Refuelled we went on to the small Glow Worm caves. It was an amazing 20 NZ Dollars each. The great grand daughter of the founder was our guide ...

    ... as we bumped along the ascent. The island has some vegetation midst lava. The rough, uneven solid lava was uncomfortable walk on. We chatted to Richard who told us that he was originally from Walthamstow and he and his wife had followed their daughter to Aukland. Richard was the first if a number of Brits we met who had chosen a New Zealand life. At the end of the rough track, we got down from the trailer and walked up the ...

    I was in the bay of islands Oct 16 and went on a discover the bay boat ride. It took us through the bay of islands to Motu kokako (the hole in the rock ). The boat went inside a little ways but we didn't go through.

    I have pictures of this but internet is really limited here. A lot of places allocate you 100mb and you can buy more but it goes fast. So I’m ...

    ... We were given a guided tour. The guide told us about the history of the Waitangi Treaty which is viewed as New Zealand's founding document, signed in 1840. It has three clauses and was an agreement between the British Crown through the then Governor and a trusted missionary and the chiefs of all the Maori tribes (or iwi). There is a Moari language version and an English language version. The first clause differs in each version. In the ...
