Gisborne, here we come.

On New Year’s Day we said goodbye to Steve and Rosemary. They were heading down towards Carterton.

We were well overdue for a trip to Gisborne as it has been 7 years since our last visit!

We headed off via the coast up past Wairoa which seemed to go on forever. The forecast bad weather had arrived and was settling in.

We found a neat little Fish shop just by the turnoff to Mahia Peninsula which had the best Fish and Chips I’ve tasted for a long time then we headed off again up towards Gisborne.

The park

The new NZMCA park in Gisborne is a beauty right over the road from the beach. With the weather the way it was it was no real surprise to see a couple of cruise ships anchored off the coast.

The next day we spent the morning catching up with the Laundry, bedding and all. It was nice to have a everything clean again. After that we headed off to find a nice Cafe for some lunch and got some more groceries while we were right next to a 4 Square.

The new park is a cracker with the beach right over the road.
Well done to the local crew for the Garden Art, it looks great.

  1. Hi Chris and family, what a nice trip and I envy you. Love,y pictures again as usual. Would love to be with you as I have some relatives (connected a few generations ago) living north of Gibson along the coast. I case you meet her plse say hello. Het name is Tui Aroha Warmenhoven. All family Warmenhoven come originally from Noordwijk, The Netherlands. Our name is founded by a great great grandfather who was a breadbaker standing in front of the Warm oven(furnace). And made it into Warmenhoven. So if you run into …. 😉 also in Australia.
    Have a good time and stay healthy. Kind regards Hans
