We decided to drive up Durie Hill which is one of the main tourist attractions, it has a lift up to the top of the hill which costs $5, so we decided not to pay and drive up, we did get great views over the town and climb a memorial tower, now when I say we what I actually mean is Justin climbed up the tower because I got sick....Again when I got scared so high up (really need to kick this fear of heights). We then drove to Virginia Reserve, which is a lovely lake with lakeside walks, so we spent a couple of hours walking around the lake watching all the birds, we wandered through a rose garden then sat for a bite to eat. There was also a bird sanctuary where Traybird got to meet lots of different types of parrots and other birds, it was great weather which made it a really good day.
We headed to Paraparamu to set up camp for the night and when we awoke Justin released he left his coat in Wanganui and wanted to drive back for it so we headed back there picked the coat up then turned around and headed south to Wellington.
