Tiki Tour 2012 - Moeraki and Oamaru

Moeraki Boulders
Yesterday we travelled from Queenstown to Oamaru via Arrowtown, Alexandra, Ranfurly and Moeraki.

Old Post and Telegraph building in Arrowtown
Moeraki boulders again. . . or are they dinosaur eggs?!
During our journey, we developed the strong urge to cycle the Otago Central Rail Trail (we kept coming across sections of it). More info here. . .

This morning we called in at the Whitestone cheese factory and cafe and enjoyed sampling some of the cheeses and buying several more! They do a range of cow's, sheep's and goat's milk cheeses and all are supremely delicious!

Here is a link to their website, and there is even an online shop, for those of you within New Zealand!

Today we are off to Christchurch again, hopefully hot-air ballooning in the morning…


  1. That's my favourite drive ever! I love the boulders, they are so cool. We did the the rail trail a couple of years ago - it was brill :-)

  2. Yes, that drive is amazing! Incredible scenery at almost every turn! We will definitely need to get in training before cycling the Rail Trail, but it is something to aim for ;-)
