A Must Try – Mt Cook, Hooker Valley Track

Starting at White Horse Hill campground, the Hooker Valley Track is a 5km 3-hr return track, easily done on a fine -weather day.

Being relatively flat, it is not likely to “take your breath away” but the scenery will.

You will meet 2 thrilling swing bridges along the way(check out the pictures above). The further one caves into the side of Mt Wakefield just above the Muller lake.

As the track starts to follow the Hooker river, which is fed by the glacier from the end of the track, the magnificent view of New Zealand’s highest mountain, Mt Cook, starts to emerge.

Continuing from here is an easy boardwalk which leads to some rocky tracks but you will surely be rewarded with the Hooker glacier at the trail end and a 3000m Mt Cook towering above.

For that rewarding day, just back-track to the trail head.

White Horse Hill campground has ample unpowered sites for your campervan and a huge shared kitchen with public toilets.

Whale of a time

Whale facts – every tail of a whale is different; just like our fingerprints. Each individual whale is identified by its uniqueness of it.
The sea around Kaikoura, New Zealand, is home to some of the most magnificent giants.
Resident sperm whales, that can grow up to 20m and over 50 tons, can be seen all year round and to add the awesomeness of it all, schools of dusky dolphins will welcome you to their domain!

Kaikoura is about 2hrs 30 mins easy drive by campervan / motorhome from Christchurch Airport.
Ditch your campervan and head out to sea….ships ahoy!

Gold at its raw state

In the South East of Karlgoorlie lies a sun-baked gigantic chasm- 3.5km long,1.5kmwide and 570m deep, big enough to be seen from space. This place is Australia’s biggest open cut gold mine and one of the richest gold deposits in the world. It is called the Fimiston pit, also known as the Super Pit. It produces 28 tonnes of gold per year which is 1800.4 million dollars. The super pit is one of the only mines in the world that allow the public to tour. The many shades of brown soil and its endless winding roads down into the mine makes it a sight to behold. Despite the extremely hot weather at the super pit, it is a place that is much worth visiting. How to get there: Kalgoorlie town is 594.5 km and 6h 30mins away from Perth via National Highway 94.
