We spread the driving over two days. This is perhaps the least spectacular part of New Zealand we have been in, but it is pleasant enough. We stopped to look at the Moeraki boulders.
I thought the Top 10 holiday park we stayed at on Tuesday was OK but a bit spartan. The one in Timaru turns out to be vastly nicer and the one in Hamner Springs is a bit aged, but cute. They make the Dunedin one look like a prisoner of war camp conversion. In the last two cases, our campground cabins have a separate bunk room for kids, a sitting room/kitchen area and a double bed round one corner. They don't have bathrooms, but they do have microwaves, kettles, toasters.... This latest one has a sink. Funny how they vary.
