North Island wanderings

For the past two weeks Andrew and I have been holidaying in New Zealand. Although I've lived in Australia for over 28 years I grew up in NZ so we come back to catch up with family every couple of years. This time we have travelled around the lower half of the North Island, visiting several towns to combine visits to friends and family with tourism activities. A smattering of our adventures ...

A tour, on modified golf carts, down the Forgotten World Highway
near Taumarunui

A Malaysian feast at Madam Woo in Hamilton

The Classics Museum, also in Hamilton

A night at the elegant Chateau Tongariro

Snow! Near Waiouru

Feijoas, kindly collected by my intrepid niece Sophie

... and a return visit to a favourite B&B, the Old Manse in Martinborough

We're spending our final three days in New Zealand in Wellington. More photos may be forthcoming ...
