ok…….we have mentioned about who and where Franklin is…’s hoping that this has been noted!
This coming weekend (yes, talking about the weekend when we have only just had one!) is Queens Birthday weekend and if you haven’t already had a short break, this could be the right time to try something different. Why not give the Franklin region (south of Auckland city) a visit?If you are after a bit of an adrenalin rush, a visit to Spookers could help with that, or if something a little more relaxing is in order, how about get in touch with Ian and Judy at Discovery River Cruises. They will make you welcome for a day cruise or an overnighter on their very comfortable houseboat, complete with spa!!
Or, our very own Castaways on the hill overlooking the black sand beach of Kariotahi on our west coast, where the ladies can have some pampering at any one of the regions day spas, (although without having to move too far from the beach you will find Bersanti Spa) and the men can do some clay bird shooting or four wheel driving over the west coast hills
…… maybe the men want some pampering too, and the ladies, clay bird shooting ( I know that I enjoy the clay bird shooting and the spa!!) followed by a meal at Agave Restaurant where the food is absolutely perfect, as is the case with most of our dining in the region.

Whatever takes your fancy, you are sure to be able to find it here in Franklin Country
