One of the places I really enjoyed on my first visit to new Zealand so I was keen to come back. The wreck of the Rainbow Warrier has been moved to a point not far from here and I really wanted to dive the wreck but the weather cancelled all dives on it while I was here so I'll have to come back another time.

Met Narada and Sarah here and agreed to hire a car back in Auckland to drive down to Wellington, changing my plan to head straight to the South Island. We got very lucky and the smallest (backpacker) car that we booked was upgraded to a nice big automatic, which was very useful in light of Narada having the worlds biggest backpack as well as assorted other luggage.
