Stayed overnight at the Riverview Camp gound. Wondered around Murchison around lunch time. Not much open on a Sunday. Filled up with fuel and parked up to have lunhc at the Commercial Hotel in town. Had a great steak sandwhich and chips. Went onto the van park and got a spot for the night. The van park was located near the town cemetery and by a river. The river was lovely but too cold to swim in.
Next day Clint and I left the others as they went onto Nelson. We took a jet boat ride on the Buller river. We also had a go at the cable harness ride across the gorge. We had to walk across a long suspention bridge to get to both the cable ride and the jet boat. All great things to do.
Once we finished at the canyon we went back into town and had a pie from the blue tea shop. These were homemade and bloody beautiful.Read more
