So I can say I’ve visited the longest place name in the world! Yippee! There’s just not much else to do here so either bring a picnic or don’t plan to spend a whole day!

On the road from Wellington to Napier, we overnighted at Waipukurau and decided on a scenic diversion to see the longest place name in the world. The only thing there is the hill and the sign, but the drive is scenic including beaches, villages and...More

Number one on my New Zealand bucket list. Turn left off Highway 2 at Wimbledon and head towards Porangahau (nice church, well worth the visit). Just before Porangahau turn right and the hill on which Tamatea played his lute to his departed brother is 4.2...More
