Next Stop.....

.....Tongaporutu 10.23am

I'd read an article in a Motorhomes magazine about The Three Sisters at Tongaporutu so I was hoping the tide would be out when we arrived because you can only access them at low tide - we were in luck. You walk out along an inlet towards the sea and just around the corner are the Three Sisters - now jokingly called the 2 1/2 sisters because the sea has worn away one of them, further along is the Maori rock carvings and Elephant Rock. I didn't find out about the Maori carvings until after we'd been there so I was disappointed I didn't get to see them.

There's a really lovely photo of the area on this website that shows Mt Taranaki in the background.
Next stop.....New Plymouth
