Favourite summer holiday finds

Lorna Thornber Reporter from Stuff Travel

Hi everyone,
We'd love to hear about the great places you've discovered over your summer holidays, whether it's somewhere local or on a trip away. Did you come across a particularly amazing beach, camping ground, town, walk or scenic spot? What made it so special? Any activities or places to eat and drink you can recommend in the area would also be much appreciated. As usual, please include 'NFP' (not for publication) in your comment if you don't want it included in a travel article.
Cheers.

What do you think of the nine-month toxic chemical clean-up underway?

Denise Piper Reporter from Whangarei Leader

Authorities are bearing the $3m costs of a nine-month clean-up of a toxic chemical stockpile at Marsden Point, Ruakaka, but hope to recover the costs from the companies involved. The work is so dangerous, regular monitoring is needed to test for explosive or flammable air.
