Our day started early with a drive over to Cathedral cove/cave which is a huge cave system on one of the most beautiful beaches I’ve ever seen. Another stunning rainforest track down to the beach and then inside the gigantic cave that is cathedral cove.
From there we headed to a little bay called porpoise bay which apparently is a small nursery for hector dolphins. Unfortunately we didn’t see any but yet another incredible New Zealand beach. The cleanest beaches I have ever seen!
A quick pit stop in Invercargill and another stock up on Whittaker’s chocolate. This time we managed to bag coffee flavoured chocolate 🤤
Our last journey south as we headed to supposedly the most southerly tip of New Zealand. Wet, windy and 19200km away from home we made it to the most southern point of the island. Cool!
To the Fiordlands! Greeted with typical Fiordland weather, wet, wet and a little more rain it was an awesome drive through to Lake Te Anu. Mountains popping up and appearing through the mist and cloud of the evening.
We struggled to find a campsite to stay at but I am glad we did because we found a gem in Lakeside Te Anu which is a beautiful campsite right besides the lake looking across into the mountains. $50 later we hooked the van up, cranked the heating on and made some tea.
Then finally both managed to have decent hot showers! With unlimited hot water and enough pressure to rip the skin off your back. Perfect 🚿
Tomorrow we head to Queenstown for waterproofs
