8am start today. We are off to Mount Cook.
Just 20 minutes out of Dunedin is the Moeraki Boulders. These are quite amazing round rocks that are believed to have been formed in the cliffs, as wind and water eroded the cliffs, the boulders were exposed. These a re hollow inside and have hexagonal veins inside, some of these are exposed.
The Maori legend is that a war canoe had sunk in this area and the boulders are the food parcels.
The first pic is a dam builders hut. 2nd is one of the runner turbine first used in 1941. Last pic is the equipment that was once used to build the dams - now a kids playground.
