Porangahau – A Great Escape

Earlier this year, a chance meeting in a Wellington café led to a trip up to Porangahau to discuss tourism opportunities in the area. Eight months later we were invited back to attend the launch of ‘Destination Porangahau’.

A day with a Waimarama Māori Elder

Growing up in Hawke’s Bay, I’ve been privileged to have spent many summer holidays at Waimarama Beach – memories of body surfing the waves, walking along the beach to see how far we could get (I still haven’t quite done the whole length – it’s long!), ice cream cones dripping down my hands faster

Tea and Trout on the Ngaruroro

Pulling into Puketitiri Lodge, the home of One Cast Fly Fishing Adventures, after a five hour drive from Wellington to a warm, welcoming hug from our host and guide Marlene was exactly what was needed. That, and walking in to the kitchen to smell the delicious aroma of dinner bubbling away!
