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.

Are granny flats a good retirement option?

Mikaela Wilkes Reporter from Homed

Hi everyone, I'm Mikaela, a Stuff Homed reporter. We're doing a story on what granny flats are like as a housing option in retirement. For those of you that are either living in a granny flat, or are the family who built/bought a granny flat to add to your property for an elder family member, we'd like to hear about why a granny flat was right for you. What was the process of getting one and learning to live together like? If you're happy to share your story and be featured in the article, please email mikaela.wilkes@stuff.co.nz or let us know in the comments below, your message may be used in our story.

Exceed have donated 2 AED units placed on Mauao

Exceed - we fix windows & doors

Hi Neighbours,

We are very excited to announce our donation of 2 defibrillators that have been installed on Mauao summit track and base walk yesterday 🙌

Mauao has over a million people using the tracks every year. Our purpose is to provide these medical facilities as part of our commitment to sustaining a safe and healthy community.
We will be looking after the hardware maintenance of the AED units to ensure they will be operational if required.

Thank you to The Heart Box New Zealand Charity for making this possible ❤️

📍You can now find the units at the junction of Waikorire and Oruahine track, at the top of the stairs and along the base track at the steep track junction.
