... golf club is set on Stewart Island in the middle of the river and had glorious views out across the river to the tree-lined banks. The food was decent and they did $10 lunch specials so we tucked into steak and prawn cutlets. Not bad. We were however the youngest people there by about 30 years.

I take particular note of James's tip to go and say hi to people at rest areas - he's been given freshly caught fish and shown local attractions he'd otherwise have missed. I hope I can get in on this act on my travels! I get to bed at 10.30, slightly wobbly after sampling a couple more of Australia's beer selection!
