Ongaroto Road, State Highway 43, near Whakamaru

When Iggy starts suggesting new routes for our journey home, I draw a deep breath. We have driven on some spectacularly long and windy roads in the name of a new route. This time, Iggy got it right in a big way.

We parked at the foot of a flight of over 100 steps.

Near the top, we could look back at the dam.

This was how it looked from on top of the world. Can you spot the wee car on the roadway below? Awesome!

    I love those beautiful spots in New Zealand.

  2. Yes! This one came as a bit of a surprise. We took that route home on the recommendation of a friend as he loved the rugged landscape along the roadway. We were not disappointed.
