For the last few months I’ve been driving plenty of back roads in rural Tararua District. This isn’t really on anyone’s tourist trail in New Zealand. This is simply farming country. Much of the time, you’re on these roads by yourself, or accompanied by livestock. Often the roads are unsealed. This is real New Zealand. This is the country we love. This is the stuff we pass every day on our way somewhere. Get off the beaten track and go and visit New Zealand, not just the touristy stuff.
I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing some of the landscapes I love so much. We have much amazing countryside, off the beaten track. Those country roads are my home.
