Just awesome. Beautiful architecture mantained with an obvious sense of civic pride. The natural environment looks beautiful as well.

Excellent pics, thanks for sharing them with us. I think I had better get over to NZ for a visit next year, thanks to threads like this one and your Auckland one.

Wow! That city is gorgeous. Never heard of it before, but it looks well worth a visit... if only it wasn't at the other side of the globe...

Great pictures and thanks for the tour. Allways in for a bunch of art deco-pearls.

Marketing is not one of New Zealand's strong points. They would much rather keep it a secret, stupid I know Thanks for the compliment and for the visit, it is much appreciated mate

As for this gem. I stayed at the Masonic a few winters ago. What a place. Little bit ramshackle, pouring rain, creaks all night, its own resident ghost. I would go back tomorrow.

While its a small town, I thought it had a neat little vibe. Good coffee too.

Thanks ML We popped into the reception area and you can smell the history, I must admit that it did feel a little "creepy" and therefore I am way too chicken to stay there - like the Shining

For such a small town it offers everything and more, I would love to see a tram route back there like the one in Christchurch, which reminds me, we have booked our flights for Wellington and CHC and will arrive in CHC on 22 January for one night - hopefully you are there and we can catch up ?

Great ! We would love that, as long as we stay out of New Brighton Sadly we expect to see damage and that is no problem sweety. We are going to see the Ron Mueck exhibition which shouldn't take too long - have you been ? if not why don't you join us and then we can go for a meal and a drink or three

"Cape Kidnapperīs"...is it actually the placeīs name or you decided to put that title? Iīm here laughing because of this little thing. Well, it can be effect of the late hours over here, but they say people with higher IQīs tend to go to bed late so...*fist pump*

Turism promoters over here say Portugal is full of beautiful corners to discover...looks like the same happens Down Under

Sounds like a plan!

Cant get over how hot and dry Hawkes Bay looks, very reminiscent of Banks Peninsula.

It is the real name It is a very exclusive area and this is where you can find "The Farm" - an extremely luxurious resort (one of the world's best). We weren't allowed to "the farm" because they had exclusive guests there, rumored to be U2, Jay Z and Beyonce who had just completed their concerts in Auckland. We did the next best thing and drove around - check out the website, it is stunning: http://www.capekidnappers.com/

I don't doubt for one minute that you are a genius, after all, you browse through my threads The world is full of incredible places but NZ is blessed with so much in such a small area, we are very lucky indeed. Thanks for the comment mate

The locals were telling us that they get very little rain in the area - sounds like my kind of place who knows, in a couple of years we may be locals We will phone you once we get to Christchurch - okay ?
