More great pictures, Ben. There's a surprising amount of level and farmable land down in that valley. It occurs to me that this would be a good area for hang-gliding, with all the steep slopes and strong air currents that would flow upwards.

Thank you Steve!

There is definitely a huge amount of farmable land in NZ, both North and South Island despite the mountainous appearance. The pastures are some of the best in the world green and rich throughout the year.

You're spot-on regarding the Hang-gliding. They were doing just that, in the first shot, while we were there!! I did take a little video clip as well!
Cheers
