Jess is a Wanderer Kayaking the Whanganui River

Jess is a Wanderer Kayaking the Whanganui River

Jess is a Wanderer set sail down the Whanganui River on a five-day, unguided adventure. We hired the kayaks from Whanganui River Canoes and can't recommend them enough. Here’s what happened...If you’re short on time and don’t want to read the whole post, scroll down for the video! It’s a cracker! *WARNING* this is rather a long post but I really have to set the scene for you to get an insight into our five day adventure on the great Whanganui River!!

Jess is a Wanderer in Tongariro National Park

Tongariro National Park is famous for the ever-popular Tongariro Alpine Crossing that sees thousands of visitors complete each year. With the infamous Devil's Staircase (a trillion, billion steps that are able to give you a heart attack), views of Mount Doom from Lord of the Rings and beautiful emerald lakes, it's easy to see why it's so popular.But what else does this National Park have to offer? Much more, that's for sure! As well as being home to Mount Ngauruhoe (Mount Doom), there is also ...

Jess is a Wanderer in Taranaki Region

Jess is a Wanderer in Taranaki Region

Jess is a Wanderer ventured around Mount Taranaki in search of good views, good hikes and good weather. Sadly, there were intermittent views, slippy hikes and the worst weather you could imagine! We made it out for a couple of sunrises without getting washed away - but without seeing too much either. We did, however, enjoy some very soggy walks through the bush.Mount Taranaki peaking through the clouds on an almost perfectly clear morning. It was just a shame we woke up at 4 for the sunrise, ...
Jess is a Wanderer on the Forgotten World Highway

Jess is a Wanderer on the Forgotten World Highway

Jess is a Wanderer drove along State Highway 43 from Stratford to Taumaranui (over two or three different trips) to explore New Zealand's famous Forgotten World Highway.The highway has some of the most scenic views I've seen across the almost 10,000km that I've driven around the north island of this fabulous country. From sprawling fields to sun-kissed hills and quaint railway tracks - this road will not disappoint.You can even stop in the tiny village of Whangamomona and get your passport ...
Jess is a Wanderer at the Three Sisters

Jess is a Wanderer at the Three Sisters

Jess is a Wanderer was searching for the infamous three sisters - three rocks which have been eroded away from the coastline and now stand on the beach near Tongaporutu. They are also near a large rock-mass known as 'the elephant'. One bit of advice: check the tide or you may be disappointed! Depending on the weather - which so many things in the Taranaki region do depend on - you might get to see some almighty waves smashing into the cliffs. If that's the case, it's no wonder that so many rock ...
Jess is a Wanderer in New Plymouth

Jess is a Wanderer in New Plymouth

Jess is a Wanderer explored New Plymouth and climbed to the top of Paritutu Rock, ventured around Pukekura Park and visited Te Rewa Rewa bridge. All in all, combined with the magnificent Mount Taranaki, New Plymouth is a fab place to be based.Te Rewa Rewa bridge is on the coastal walkway which spans the entire town of New Plymouth. It's an easy stroll that it suitable for all abilities with great views of Mount Taranaki - on a clear day. Sadly, that wasn't the case when we were in town, despite ...
Jess is a Wanderer at Waitomo Caves

Jess is a Wanderer at Waitomo Caves

Jess is a Wanderer ventured down to Waitomo Caves for the adventure of a lifetime. Waitomo Adventures offer an Epic Lost World 7 hour tour. It's the perfect way to spend a rainy day - if you've got some serious dollar spare as it's not the cheapest activity but it's worth every penny. The first task is to abseil 100m down into the abyss of the lost world cave. It really does look like a fairytale world or something as it's this misty, murky hole beneath the earth's surface. The second part is to ...

Jess is a Wanderer at Mount Eden

Jess is a Wanderer at Mount Eden

Auckland is much more than a harbour-side city with a couple of skyscrapers scattered around. Jess is a Wanderer went exploring Mount Eden for some great city views. The climb will take no longer than fifteen minutes and it's actually to the top of a volcano with a ginormous crater. Highly recommend for a short walk, picnic or photo shoot. Whatever takes your fancy! ...
Jess is a Wanderer at Muriwai Beach

Jess is a Wanderer at Muriwai Beach

Jess is a Wanderer ventured to Auckland's outskirts in search of the infamous Muriwai Beach - a beach where the black sand contains iron ore and is actually magnetic! There's also a gannet colony (which absolutely stinks) and some great rock formations. It's worth waiting for the tide to come in so you can see the waves smashing through a naturally formed blow-hole. There's also a cave you can go inside - but that's only for low tide! It's all about the tide at this beach so get the timing right ...

Jess is a Wanderer at Te Paki Sand Dunes

Jess is a Wanderer braved the scolding hot sand of Te Paki sand dunes to have a wild time surfing the great sandy banks on a body board.Whilst the drive to the northernmost part of New Zealand - Cape Reinga - is long and arduous, the scenery is certainly to be admired. If you do find that you are feeling a little sleepy along the way, do stop at Te Paki and wake yourself up with a mouthful of sand and crispy as you hurtle down the mounds at break neck speed.Body boards can be hired from the car ...

Jess is a Wanderer in Auckland

Jess is a Wanderer in Auckland

Jess is a Wanderer visited Auckland as part of a whistle-stop tour before heading north one more. The great thing about travelling is the people you meet. I was fortunate enough to meet local Aucklander - Scott - who told me of three hotspots from which to view the city at night. Armed with my tripod, a jacket, extra batteries, my camera and remote, I set off for the first spot: Sulphur Bridge. Here, you are literally underneath the harbour bridge and the views of the city are quite incredible. ...
Jess is a Wanderer at Hobbiton

Jess is a Wanderer at Hobbiton

Jess is a Wanderer (out here in 2018) finally got around to watching The Lord of the Rings... it's been a long time coming and for someone who has a severe dislike of 'the fantastical', I have to say I thoroughly appreciated the films. Such stunning landscapes even if I didn't thoroughly understand what was going on. Nonetheless, when the opportunity arose to visit Hobbiton, I jumped at the chance.Located outside Hamilton in Matamata, Hobbiton was chosen for its perfect landscape set in the ...
Jess is a Wanderer at Blue Spring

Jess is a Wanderer at Blue Spring

With over 70% of all New Zealand's bottled water coming from this very spring, it's an absolute must-visit when in the area!It was a rainy day when we visited but the sand flies were right on cue to nibble at our toes and ankles as we tried to enjoy the view and a rather soggy picnic ...
Jess is a Wanderer at New Brighton Pier

Jess is a Wanderer in Christchurch

Jess is a Wanderer in Christchurch

Jess is a Wanderer spent a day wandering around Christchurch. Despite the awful earthquake of 2011, the city is very much repairing, rebuilding and recovering from the damage. A colourful, quirky city - I had a really lovely time mooching around.Whether you're into fresh food from around the world, funky street art, beautiful gardens or mingling with the locals in a park - Christchurch has it all. We stumbled around the city with no plan of where to go or what to see. We found a shipping ...
Jess is a Wanderer Climbs Mount Taranaki

Jess is a Wanderer Climbs Mount Taranaki

Jess is a Wanderer climbed New Zealand's Mount Taranaki - here's everything you need to know to prepare for your own ascent.Climbing Mount Taranaki was a difficult and challenging climb. I won't pretend that it was easy because it really wasn't. Right from the beginning the ascent was steep and the terrain some of the most difficult I've ever experienced. But... the views were out of this world!It begins with a rather unpleasant hike up a concrete path. Despite the steepness, it is actually the ...
Jess is a Wanderer at Shine Falls

Jess is a Wanderer at Shine Falls

Jess is a Wanderer returned to Hawkes' Bay tallest waterfall because it's that amazing and absolutely worth a detour, a special visit or even without a reason at all. A must-see destination. The sign in the carpark says the walk takes two hours return. The sign lies. Without much effort at all, you can reach the halfway mark in forty minutes. Walk quickly and you'll do it in thirty. If you're a bit nuts and you've left your camera and laptop with a little old lady and her dog in the carpark, you ...
Jess is a Wanderer at Omanawa Falls

Jess is a Wanderer at Omanawa Falls

Jess is a Wanderer defied all warnings and climbed over fences in order to access perilous Omanawa Falls.Omanawa Falls are found outside Tauranga. Located before the turn-off for McLaren Falls, you'll see the other curious trampers parked up in their cars and make-shift camper-vans dotted on the side of the road. Perhaps you'll speak to some fellow travellers and ask of their success or failure in getting down behind the falls. We met some chaps who had decided not to venture down due to the ...
Jess is a Wanderer at Mermaid Pools

Jess is a Wanderer at Mermaid Pools

Jess is a Wanderer arrived at Matapouri Beach where the beginning of the hike to Mermaid Pools begins. The signs warn of the unformed track and steep descents. They also recommend you continue at your own risk. I'm not sure why, but it was at this point I decided that I didn't need any shoes.The hike involves a stroll along the beach and then either swimming/wading through the sea or painfully scrambling over rocks to get around the 'corner' and beginning the descent. If it's been raining at all ...

Jess is a Wanderer Hiking to Cape Brett

Jess is a Wanderer decided to take on the challenge of the Cape Brett Track. A 16.3km hike from Oke Bay to the Cape Brett DOC (Department of Conservation) Hut at the end of the peninsula. The weather was forecast to be lovely and the views promised to be amazing. What could possibly go wrong?The first mistake I made was by getting over-excited at seeing the words 'Cape Brett Track' on a sign and immediately pulling over, parking the car and setting off. What I didn't realise was that I was at ...
Jess is a Wanderer at Waitangi Day

Jess is a Wanderer at Waitangi Day

Jess is a Wanderer arrived into Waitangi for the annual February 6th celebrations. This is New Zealand's 'national day' and often referred to as the day the country was founded.

From there, 3km ...
