Favourite discoveries on NZ travels

Lorna Thornber Reporter from Stuff Travel

Hi everyone,
We'd be keen to hear about your discoveries on your recent travels around New Zealand. Were there any small towns, activities or attractions that surprised you, for better or for worse? Did you come across any lesser-know spots you think more Kiwis should check out? Which small towns do you think deserve more visitors than they get? Please remember your comment may be included in an article unless you state that you don't want it to be. Cheers.

The facility, in a quiet Papanui street occupied by just 32 homes, is being remodelled into a boarding house to accommodate up to 75 people aged between 25 and 45.

Residents are vehemently opposed to the 57-room facility and about 25 have written passionate submissions pleading for the boarding house not to be consented.
