There are of course some things a little different than normal, and many locals are calling it the New Kaikoura



The Kaikoura township in the South Island of New Zealand relies on Tourism for it’s very existence. They are starting to get back on their feet after the November quake and the locals are calling it the New Kaikoura. The road has also now re-opened from Christchurch to Kaikoura along the coast and the Inland Road Route from Hanmer Springs and Blenheim.
