      Firstly thanks for all the helpful info. Major change of plans decided to fly from Auckland to Christchurch rather than take the ferry

      Is it possible in a day to drive from Christchurch via Arthurs Pass to Greymouth - a friend who is married to a Kiwi laughed at the idea yet Google maps makes it 151 miles which would make it doable even on mountain roads given that we started early. Likewise I've been warned that the roads around Fox & Franz Joseph Glaciers are liable to close if there is heavy rain. In blunt terms is this scaremongering - equally a hol is for relaxing so we don't want stress

      All info much appreciated and I'm sorry for bothering VTs but I know the advice given is always top notch

      Many thanks

      Do you still belong to Best Western group, or another group or are you independent. I stayed at the Shining Star chalets in 2003.

    • Help contact store in Hokitika

      by GulliversMom Online Now Nov 15, 2006 at 9:04 PM

      We just returned from a fabulous month in New Zealand. While in Hokitika I was looking seriously at a piece of flowered greenstone. I did not get it, but now am regreting that decision. Unfortunately, I did not get the name of the store.

      I believe the store I'm looking for was on the west side of Revell St, south of
      Weld. It was a very nice store that sold only jade, and had 4 separate rooms.

      If anyone could provide me with the name of the store, and either an e-mail or phone number, I would greatly appreciate it.
