      This is a number of bungalows set back from the highway. They are quite quirky, but basic. OK for one night.

      Up early to be picked up at 7.15am for the 8.45am train to Greymouth. The carriages all have large picture windows plus the corners in the roof are also glass. There is also an observation car with no glass. We set off in sunshine but it didn't last and it became windy and rainy the further west we got. The trip one of New Zealand’s (and …

      We stopped for a lunch at Greymouth in the old Customs House by the riverfront, now the Speights Pub. Sitting there we saw the trans-island railway train arrive at the station ...

      During the night, we were rocked by blustery wind and lashed by rain which hadn't let up much by morning, and Chris ventured out in his very smart red Peruvian poncho, which he said was about as much use as a chocolate fireguard in the wind!

      ... off at Murchison a former mining town which suffered a serious earthquake in 1929 and was also visited by the Prince of Wales in 1927. We planned to have a picnic lunch and found a nice spot by the river, however, we were bothered by many persistent bees and had to retreat to the car! Before reaching our day's destination of Punakaiki for a night stopover we visited a nearby seal colony at Wall Island, Westport. This was a very special moment watching the ...

      ... area, also making a point to stop at the odd lookout for the views. The first picnic stop we came to, thankfully we didn't get straight out of Eggy; within about 30 seconds the car was surrounded by a small swarm of wasps! They clearly didn't want us to eat our lunch there! We stopped about 10 minutes up the road, and had a nice lunch looking out over a valley. After lunch, we made our way to the beach camp in Punakaiki where we ...
