1 Dont know
2 A beautiful part of New Zealand
3 The Bridge to Nowhere. A group of us canoed down the Whanganui river and walked into the bridge. It is amazing to see where shell shocked young soldiers after World War 1 were settled to farm. No wonder there weren't any left there after 20 or so years.
4 Benmore Dam. As a child, once a month my parents would take us to see the progress on the dam in the 1960s. Great excitement for boys of 8 and 10 years to see the large machinery used.
5 Castlepoint village and lighthouse.

3. ummm.
4. Benmore Dam - my family made an annual pilgramage to see progress on its construction when I was a child.
5. Castelpoint - home to annual horse race on the beach and a restaurant where we had a Fawlty Towers experience (it now has different owners).
