South Island

The South Island is considered by many people to be the best of New Zealand.

This post sums up my summer on the South Island in 2016, and links to various others posts on the subject.

All posts on the South Island were made in January, February, March, April, May and June of 2016.


Many of the most beautiful places in the Auckland region can be found in Auckland’s Regional Parks. These include Auckland’s famous west coast beaches, mountain ranges, and much more.
