Not that easy to find if you are unfamiliar with New Plymouth. Knowing roughly where I was going followed the road signs which ran out in a paddock area. Figured it out that I would keep driving down the road which has multiple speed bumps....More

I enjoyed seeing the fancy design of this new bridge. It sits at the Fitzroy end of the coastal walkway which will extend to Waitara. Not easy to locate, when driving from the city, but the open countryside surroundings makes this bridge stand out from...More
