Road trip along North Otago coast will lead you to this unusually large boulders lying at the Koekohe Beach.
Moeraki Boulders are natural phenomenon and one of the most popular attractions here on the South Island.
Originally formed around 60 million years ago these three meters in diameter stones are definitely great place for a bit different photo.
According to Maori legend these boulders are gourds washed ashore from the great voyaging canoe Araiteuru when it was wrecked after the landfall in New Zealand. According to science it is result of formations created by hardening sea sediment exposed through sea erosion.
The desire to wander, travel, explore and discover is just getting bigger and bigger. I know that for a lot of you, as well as for me, the only question is ‘Where to next?’. It is just the way of life. Isn’t it?
Amazing place just five minutes from downtown Rotorua is Whakarewarewa Forest known by the locals as Redwoods. People come here to ride a mountain bike, enjoy horse riding and a walk along great walking tracks. For me the most fascinating thing was Treewalk. It consists of 23 suspension bridges between 22 Californian coastal redwoods. The view of 100 years old dense native bush, from 12 meters above the ground, is stunning!
