We were pleasantly greeted with an upgrade in our accommodation with no extra charge. The hosts put us in a two bedroom unit with a lounge & fully equipped kitchen. All of the facilities were presented in a neat, clean & fresh manner. I was even impressed that we were asked whether we'd prefer full cream or skim milk (most places don't give you that choice).
The the cool think was free WiFi. In this modern era of travel, free WiFi is a great addition to any accommodation.
Kids both agreed that this place deserves a 5 star rating.

... trusting our own skills we headed across the road to the garage recommended by the VTNZ. Thankfully they are all too used to backpackers passing through and were amazed that we only needed a seatbelt, backpacker cars usually need miracles or scrapping. The painful element of this encounter was the realisation that seatbelts are really expensive! $250 for one seatbelt to be bought and fitted ouch.
Like everything else in NZ dealing with the garage was ...
... sports grounds.
After having some light refreshments we went round the museum. There was also a Tuatara breeding centre attached to the museum and have 80 animals at present.
The tuatara is a small lizard and the name is derived from the Maori language, and means peaks on the back.
It was nearly 4pm before we made our way to the site.
Once parked up we booked a ferry trip to Stuart Island for the next ...
... Milford Road closed". No need for the coat experiment, the trip north was off. To Invercargill we would go! First stop and a chuckle, 'Clifden Suspension Bridge'. Opened in 1899, the longest suspension bridge in NZ at this time. Snippet that grabbed my a attention today, "Tauatapere, known internationally as the Sausage Capital of the World". The town was pretty small, some old school shops and a butcher. The butcher had the sausage claim ...
