A day exploring State highway 1 between Pokeno & Taupiri.
1st stop – Pokeno for bacon supplies for lunch, then south to Ngaruawahia. (was going to be Taupiri) for a walk around .
Next stop, Huntly – home of the Top Twins and NZs largest coal power station for a flat walk around Lake Hakanoa and a quick visit of the Coalfields museum.
Our now famous Master Chef (Louis A), will whip up bacon butties so good even the vegetarians won’t be able to resist.
After lunch we will walk around Lake Puketirini & perhaps Lake Waahi.
Heading home we can stop at the New Zealand’s biggest bog (Whanghamarino Wetlands) and buy an old fashioned value for money ice cream at Pokeno.
Easy day doing as much or as little as you fancy.
