Eight North Island Farmers Fly Their Planes Down to Raft the Landsborough River

Wednesday, April 27th, 2011

Organiser Peter Jex Blake, a farmer from Hawkes Bay and seven other farmers from the same area flew their small planes down for a break away from the farm. We stayed at lake Ohau before setting off on the two day hike over the Broderick Pass. Others flew in by helicopter to met up with the crew for the next two days rafting. They had the time of their lives cruising around experiencing New Zealands most unique back country in a number of different forms of transport. See you all next year on the Waiatoto for some jetboating, hiking and rafting.
