Journeys : June July 2009
Destinations In the Land of the Long White Campervan Chris Viney Akaroa, Banks Peninsula People driving sports cars and trucks do it, but only to other sports car drivers and truckies. People in white utes on Bruny Island do it, but only if the other ute has an Islander sticker on the windscreen. On King and Flinders Island, everybody does it to everybody else. A Tasman Glacier nd on New Zealand’s country roads, campervanners do it to each other. The classic Aussie driver’s wave – just a lazy lift of the fingers, usually with the hand not even leaving the top of the steering wheel – has crossed the Tasman. It’s typical of the warmth and friendliness that you’ll experience when you tour New Zealand by campervan. Judith and I planned an independent touring journey in the North and South Islands using the Kirra Tours brochure, which contained all the information we needed, and then some. Suggested day-byday itineraries, a useful map with highlights of each location, cruises, walks and activities on the route – it’s all in the Kirra brochure. Iceberg in the terminal lake of the Tasman Glacier 14 June / July 09 We had limited time, so our idea was to spend a few days travelling in the North Island before flying to Christchurch to revisit the Mackenzie Country and Aoraki/Mt Cook, our favourite South Island Chris Viney Chris Viney Chris Viney
