I can't offer an opinion lest I be accused of insider trading but I can say nobody thus far is remotely close on No 2.

It has a distinctive shape and a distinctive history.

BTW what an excellent feature this 'Know Your Country' series is.

A great initiative GD!!!!

John said...

no. 2 looks like the Seaward Kaikoura Range at Clarence

Adolf Fiinkensein said...

John it also looks a lot like the mountains behind Nadi airport but unfortunately it is neither.

1. Jonathon Hunt former minister of wine,cheese and taxis.

2. Definitely not the Remarkables, the road goes parallel to them most of the way.

Maybe Mt Hutt?

3. Chateau Tongariro - have been there just once and it was summer time.

4. Hastings has a clock tower but it's not that. I think the others are right but honesty compels me to say I probably wouldn't have got it.

5. Lyttelton.

I second Adolf, this is a graet initiative, even though it shows I don't know my country as well as I should.
