The cafe was a quite remarkable place - a lovely cafe by day and a fab restaurant at night. I persuaded Phil we should go there for dinner and he was very glad I did, not just for the food but also because he thought the sisters who ran it were "hot"!
Whilst in the National Park we we did a walk to the Taranaki Falls. It started over moor and reminded us of Scotland, with one slight exception, the bloody great big mountain on our right hand side!
The falls themselves were gorgeous although not very full. I imagine in winter they must be impressive stuff. Once we'd completed the walk I felt much better about staying in such a healthy location!
We probably didn't do all that we could in the park but it was actually nice to have a bit of what Phil calls "bum time", the first time we had the chance to really.
