Hamurana Spring and Stream

31/12/2012

There was a lot of rain during Christmas, but that did not deter me from visiting Hamurana Spring, the deepest natural fresh water spring on the North Island of New Zealand. The walk took me along the beautiful Hamurana Stream, which in summer is home to rainbow trout. The slow drizzle of the rain and the mist added to the peacefulness and serenity of this place. Happy New Year!

It is no ordinary town ….

Matamata
it is Matamata, the place where you can find the Hobbiton Movie Set location,

Hobbiton-7716
and on An Unexpected Journey to Rotorua I was pleasantly surprised to find

Hobbiton-7720
Hobbiton-7717
the new Matamata i-SITE Visitor Centre, which was opened on 29 November 2012.
