Stayed the night at Tararu about 4 kms north from Thames. It is right on the waters edge and I noticed a cemetery up on the hill that I had not seen on previous visits. It is the oldest cemetery in Thames and is well maintained by a volunteer.
Access is restricted to climbing the stairs as slips have taken out the road. Would be an excellent place for your remains to spend some time after you died.
A few shots of a South Island road trip to some off the beaten track places that most will not have seen. From Anatori and Westhaven to Westport, to Matukituki, Kohaihai, Bruce Bay, Nevis Crossing, Matukituki, Wanaka, Glenorchy, Lake Wakatipu, Wairau diversion, Mesopotamia and Port Elizabeth
