You are here for a wild ride on Paekakariki Hill Road one of New Zealand’s craziest local roads, its close to Wellington and a lot of fun if you like twists and turns!
I’m Harvey Button and I want to welcome to my first ever Middle Earth Monday, giving you a view of Clean and Green New Zealand! OK let’s get started with some local territory.
Edgar came to visit us here in NZ and he got the full treatment ending up here at the Paekakariki Hill Road Look out for a superb view up the coast.
If you look to the right, you can see the road slopes down, although it’s pretty hard to try and take a picture while driving a crazy bumper car switchback so Edgar posed in the Lookout at the top!
You can also see the State Highway on the left of the picture as it travels through Paekakariki itself before travelling north for a long way up the coast. Oh, how to you pronounce it? Paekakariki you mean? Try this Pay-Kaka-Ree-Kee and see how you get on!
See you next time folks!
