Saturday 22nd February 2014: Meadowbank Homestead proved a very pleasant stay with exceptional food. This Homestead is the rebuilt Wilson family's ancestral home full of history as well as modern comforts! See Wilson video of Meadowbank Homestead.
The tide was out in the morning, so it was safe to head off!! We headed over a shallow channel to the airstrip in front of Awaroa Lodge before heading over the Tonga Saddle to Richardson Stream, Onetahuti and Tonga Quarry.
