“We thoroughly enjoyed our exchange to Keith and Mary's lovely old home with the added bonus of fresh eggs from 'the girls' each day. A comfortable walk to the town centre and historic area. For a town of under 14,000 people the grandiose buildings, including a beautiful opera house, left over from the gold rush days are astonishing and well worth viewing. We met Mary and Keith at Christchurch airport and so were able to use their car to travel the 3 hours south and did the same of their return making it very easy.”
