Day Twelve – Invercargill to Manapouri


Waimatuku Presbyterian Church, built 1913.


St Mary the Virgin Church in Riverton.


The Riverton Museum, apparently the best one in NZ, we didn’t check to make sure.

Two lovely old buildings in Riverton.


Near Tuatapere.

Bringing the power from Manapouri to the rest of NZ.

Taken at Pearl Harbour in Manapouri, again the water is so clear that I was able to see this Brown Trout quite clearly.

The old Okawa church was moved to Pearl Harbour and became a pub!


I’d say we are about ten days too early to see the autumn splendour but every so often we get glimpses like these.

The native bird the Takahe was thought to be extinct until it was rediscovered in 1948 in the Fiordland National Park, the only place in the world it can be found.


I wasn’t game to try one!


The idyllic little cabin we had at Possum Lodge Motel on the edge of Lake Manapouri.
