Welcome aboard folks, we hope you enjoy our little snapshot tour of ordinary everyday backcountry life in the north island of New Zealand…
A typical station (i.e. ranch/farm):
The “yards” and shearing shed at another station:
Morning traffic jams:
Forestry and livestock farming:
What they do to the forestry when it’s “ripe”:
One lane bridges – a common back-country experience:
The Wairarapa region has the road over Rimutaka Hill, in part, to thank for its low population. You see, this is the only road connecting it to Wellington. In fact, this is one of only two roads that connect the capital city of Wellington to the rest of the country! Yes, if you are in search of autobahns, New Zealand will badly disappoint you.
That’s all for now folks, I hope you have enjoyed our little tour of the southeastern north island! Drive safe!
