The Pupu Hydro Walkway retraces an old gold-mining water race, later reused for power generation. The race follows the steep contours of the hillside and was an engineering masterpiece for its time. Large koura (freshwater crayfish) live in the channel. Bird life is plentiful with an abundance of tui, bellbirds, weka and kereru (woodpigeons). The vegetation varies from mixed young beech-rimu forest to mature beech-podocarp forest. The walkway begins 9 km from Takaka in Golden Bay, New Zealand.
So glad to see this rejuvenation of aminus3 taking place. I posted daily for 5 years but then stopped shortly after moving to Vientiane, Lao PDR in 2014. The internet connectivity there wasn't great. I missed posting daily but most of all, the sense of community. So very glad to be back!
