The popular Piano Flat riverside camping ground is situated in a farmland area with the beautiful Waikaia river running through it. There are walking tracks and tramps from here plus biking, fishing, hunting and 4WD excursions (see my Whitecoomb road post) This camp is very busy over Christmas, New Year and Easter etc. The last…
We were staying at the Piano Flat camping ground for a few days last summer and decided about 10.00am one morning to take the dogs up the road and find a quiet swimming hole for them. After they had a good swim we thought we would drive a bit further up Whitecoomb road.
We had been to Slope point a few times but it was either blowing a howling gale and raining or the walk was closed for lambing. This was about the best day we had over the 2021 Christmas break so we made the most of it.
We picked an absolutely stunning day to visit Invercargill and Bluff.
Cosy Nook – is a beautiful spot on the South coast of the South Island.
Lake Hauroko is located in a mountain valley in Fiordland National Park in the South Island of New Zealand
Waipapa Point Lighthouse – located at Waipapa Point in Southland, New Zealand. About an hour’s drive south from Papotowai or 50 mins from Invercargill, in the beautiful Catlins district.
If you haven’t been to the Edendale Crank-up and you are at all interested in vintage vehicles and machinery, or just an interesting day out, it’s well worth a look.
