And we had a thoroughly bloody miserable time there and we were so happy to get out.
I have to visit just to see the place! A few people who I know who visited echoed John's statement to a varying degree.

Agreed. It's a good little town. Thanks for the photos.
Isn't there a random town called Palmerston in the South Island...that's what I've heard anyway.

It might not have a big profile but still good to see some photos of one of our regional cities. So that's what it looks like. Thanks for posting these Nick.Yeah.

78,800 and it houses a huge University - Massey University, which has 40,000 students, but quite a few of these are at the campuses in Auckland and Wellington. Massey also has the only veterinary programme in NZ which I mentioned in the post above!
