Furneaux Lodge and grounds

Furneaux Lodge and grounds

This photo shows the main administration building housing the restaurant, bar and office. The lodge is spread across 3 acres of flat land.

We started day two by walking the Furneaux Lodge waterfall side trip. The walk is worth doing for the bush alone - there are a number of old Rimu trees along the route. One of the highlights of this walk was a sighting of a tomtit - the first time we had ever seen one of these birds in the wild.

Sorry no photos of the waterfall - a dry spell had reduced it to a trickle and it was too dark under the trees for a good shot anyway.
