Waitomo Caves Easter 2007
We stopped off in Wanganui for a picnic and stumbled across this park - the playground is ace, it has castles and all sorts!
The Campsite and Waitomo Caves village
Us in the tent, Melanie's sleeping hat (her head was cold) and the weather on the day we left!
The moon was out all day - and the stars were so clear!
The bulls in the next field woke us up each morning doing this. Then the sparrows came along and asked for their breakfast.
Fantails, young mynah, kingfisher and a tunnelweb spider's house!
The Waitomo Caves main entrance
Lots of logging goes on around here

They like their kiwis in Otorohanga!
Even on the buses!
From the Kiwi House - best photos I managed to get in the dark. The others are a North Island Kaka, Tuatara and a Pukeko
Sheep shearing capital of the world (apparently!)
The Cookie Time Plane!
We've passed this quite a few times so we had to stop this time and have a coffee.
The Desert Road
I know I keep putting up photos of this place but I love it!
Strange Roadside Things
They shear them! Before and after shots.
The NZ bush is like the Lost World - if you stand still too long something will probably start to grow on you!
