We took some short hikes to three different waterfalls along the way. We also enjoyed stunning views of beaches, farmland, and of course lots of the ever present sheep.
All of New Zealand is beautiful. Throughout our extensive travels from top to bottom we have NEVER found a place we thought was boring or ugly. Still, this particular region truly stands out as some of the most remarkable. Perhaps one day we will come back to explore it more thoroughly. If that never happens, however, we can count ourselves richly blessed for have had a taste of it today.
