We drove south Sunday lastusing the motorway to reach Hamilton . Very attractive city with nice walkways and parks . Monday we drove to Raglan on the coast and enjoyed fish and chips . We worked them off by walking to the base of NZ's highest waterfall and up again . Moving on Tuesday we drove to tauranui in the rain and stayed overnight in a comfortable homestay . Next was the dramatic Forgotten Highway to Stratford . We stayed overnight at the campsite known as bushylands .6km up a side valley and completely cut off from the world . We walked their hidden canyon to see fossils and wild horses . Yesterday we reached Stratford and today explored Mount eggcombe
