Nice bit of kit.

Really enjoyed a gawk and read of the latest TT2000 installment, that Quad tour looks amazing. I always wondered what the back country of Wanaka would look like, cheers for the pics.
That little detour at Hawea Flat got you ohh-soo-close to the start of the road along the shore to Dingleburn, a true stumper.

Looks interesting. I'd actually wondered about having a look up the other side (turn off by the Neck) on Meads Road but flagged it due to the coming weather.

Lake Hawea is such a stunning lake (parked right next to another lovely one) but man she was wild when we went through!

Kidds Bush Campsite at the end of Meads Rd. is one BEWDIFUL spot even for a picnic or swim, can't remember if the continuation into the "Something" cattle/ sheep Station is open to the public though. It's in the same DOC Hāwea Conservation Park as Dingleburn.

Even well worth the ride in/ out above the pebbly beach with that breathtaking backdrop...

Kidds Bush is getting more traffic through the main season nowadays, it's listed in various Camper/ Camping guides etc.

Lake Hawea sure is a stunner, but in those conditions pretty bloody cold, too, I guess.

Neat (and cheap) stay in the area Hawea Pub https://bit.ly/3dBtrW7 https://bit.ly/3n3WDs7
