I am not sure if Hamurana Lodge fits

the bucolic theme of today.

However it is location on the

outskirts of Rotorua is ideal.

If this scene is not bucolic,

then I am not sure what is.

Below is an area of The Great Ocean Road,

near The Twelve Apostles,

known as Gibsons Steps.

I don’t recall seeing steps but people who were

on the sand materialised in the car park

in a short space of time.

Vatican steps.

 

Viennese steps.

These steps are near the beginning of

the Orakei Korako Geothermal walk…

1.8 kilometres and nearly 666 steps later

(there was some more around the corner)

we were nearly there.

My knees were protesting and they

screamed even louder when they saw we had

several flights of these stairs to and from our room.

That was the night we were offered a ground floor room.

And took it.

Before our visit to New Zealand last year

we booked all accommodation

long before leaving Australia.

Therefore it was a bit of a surprise to discover

we had booked a place so far out of Rotorua.

But what a wonderful entrance to

Hamurana Lodge.

We were given a local welcome

shortly after entering the drive.

 

Just wish we had more time

at this beautiful accommodation.
