New Zealand photo index (photos by Colleen F. Moore):

Some New Zealand travel scenes -- including Gisborne, on the East Coast of North Island, a Maori marae, beaches, wildflowers.  

Miranda Shorebird Center   -- world famous for viewing migrating shorebirds. One of the few places in the world to see the threatened Wrybill, the only bird on the planet with a bill curved to the side

Rakiura  (or Stewart Island) -- Island off the southern tip of New Zealand. Very scenic, relaxing and romantic. Great birding spot for native forest birds

Hunua Falls -- a natural area in the southern part of the Auckland district (in north island). Great remnant of native old growth kauri trees

Wilkin River -- In the Mt Aspiring National Park, a great tramp up river to glacial cirques

Rob Roy Glacier
-- Very popular and very scenic day hike near Wanaka, New Zealand

West Matukituki River and Mt Aspiring Hut -- A popular tramping route with glacier views and some old growth forest, raging rivers spanned by swing bridges

Greenstone-Caples Rivers -- famous as the traditional place for Maori to obtain greenstone, or jade. The Greenstone River was also a main route to the divide and down to the west coast of the south island. Because of proximity to the divide tramping in this area is likely to be rainy and chilly. A great place nonetheless.

Dunedin and Dunedin Peninsula -- A scenic city with the country's oldest university, University of Otago. Great dining, shopping in small shops. The Dunedin peninsula has a colonies of royal albatross, yellow-eyed penguins, and beaches where sea mammals rest.

Some New Zealand War Memorials -- Think about it.
