    Invercargill, New Zealand

    December 29, 2018 in New Zealand ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    Today we travelled back from oban to bluff to head back to owaka. We made a few stops before arriving back in owaka. First we stopped at the start/end of route one which is the 1236km state highway 1.

    Our next stop was the invercagill transport world which very interesting and one of the highlights was the themed bathrooms. A lorry there had over 6million km on the clock and there were almost all of the first Ford models ever made. We made another stop at the botanic gardens to have a look at the tuatara where we saw Henry who is over 100years old. We made a couple more stops at a supermarket and a home depot type store and then a final stop at balclutha to have a look at Ali's school. The school looked very nice and had large grounds for football and other sports to be played on. We headed back to owaka after this.
