New Zealand Learning Adventures
This river port town reveals a different lifestyle and micro-culture.
We view the town's often wild Grey River, it's struggling port, and the pounding, Tasman Sea on its doorstep. There are walks, shops and services for travellers.
Interested groups explore the colourful, history of settlement involving violent Maori massacres then European rush for gold coal and timber that annihilated forests and land.
The Grey river from the nearby mountains has dominated the town for its 150 years. We learn how it is maintained and controlled to resist its bed-load deposits and regular flooding.
