Zero day in Ohakune
We brought forward our planed booking for the canoe trip down the Whangarei river. Today the river level was very high and no canoes were going on the river today or there has been for the last five days due to the resent rains. But tomorrow it’s expected to be getting better.
Lunch, fish and chips
The homestay was very pleasant where we had our own room and we took full advantage of using the washing machine for our smelly clothes and to eat some green vegetables from the local supermarket.
The back yard, where if you wanted to, you could pitch your tent which had great views of the Tongariro Crossing.
Supplies for the next 4-5 days
Later that afternoon, barrows that were water tight for our gear was dropped off and we started loading the barrows up with all our supplies and general clothes and then getting rid of the backpacks where we will pick them up in Wanganui camp ground.
Been a great day with coffee in town and a good meal nutritional wise.
