      My great Grand Aunt was married to Thomas Bacon. He was a Custom officer at Lyttelton from 1859 to 1901.
      I am trying to find a photo of the Custom House.

      New Zealand Dec 11, 2014 at 9:29 AM

      Hello,
      My wife and I (mid 20s) would love any insight into how to plan our 21 day road trip around the South Island of NZ. We are interested in sightseeing and hiking. We fly into Christchurch next November and out of Christchurch in December. It all looks so amazing it is hard to figure out what to skip and how to arrange all the highlights without too much driving. I appreciate any help! Please let me know if we are missing anything exciting along the way. Our tentative itinerary:
      Day 1-2 Spend in Christchurch exploring
      Day 3 Maruia Springs - camp nearby
      Day 4 Westport - see cape foulwind seal colony
      Day 5-6 Karamea - do portion of Heaphy Track and stay one night, second night in Karamea
      Day 7 Punakaiki/Greymouth - see pancake rocks stay in Greymouth for night
      Day 8 Hokitaka - hike and see hokitaka gorge
      Day 9 - Glaciers/Haast - stop to see glaciers and sleep in Haast
      Day 10-11 Queenstown - explore and hike nearby
      Day 12 Te Anau - drive day and rest before Milford Track
      Day 13-15 Milford Track
      Day 16 Te Anau - rest and explore town
      Day 17 Invercargill - explore the city and sandy point
      Day 18 Drive through Papatowai to see the lost gypsy and end in Dunedin
      Day 19 Dunedin - explore
      Day 20-21 Lake Tekapo - explore

      Thanks!

    • currency exchange

      New Zealand Yesterday

      Hi, can anyone advise. Traveling to New Zealand from the UK in February. Instead of changing sterling into NZ in the UK would it be better to do it in New Zealand at perhaps a bank or airport.
      Could anyone tell me what the current exchange rate to purchase NZ dollars with sterling is. Hard to find out whilst still in the UK.
      I find when I travel to Singapore I get a better exchange rate there than in the UK.
      Many thanks, Denise

      Child seats in taxis

      Auckland Yesterday

      I have visitors arriving at Auckland International Airport. They have a child, so how do the taxis do that? If they are on the ramp do they have access to child seats? Thanks for any insight.
