New Zealand - NZ 3 - Mohakatino and N.
Highway 3, Mohakatino and north
All photos were taken heading northward.
The only photo of the Tasman coastline I got during Highway 3's stint on the west coast of New Zealand was by the mouth of the Mokau River.
The second photo is on the Mokau River bridge.
Looking south at the mouth of the Mokau.
The last photo looks back to the southeast.
Scenery briefly shifts to the left side of the road.
On either side of the Awakino Tunnel. Highway 3 is now heading inland, and there are a lot of curves in this area, so "northward" is being applied generously.
Looking to the right, which is probably more south than east.
Approaching and through Paemako.
Starting at the northern Highway 3/Highway 4 junction and ending just north of Hangatiki in Otorohanga.
Mt. Kakepuku rises in the distance. The road is heading north again.
Two eastward photos, one westward, nearing Te Awamutu.
Mt. Pirongia rises ahead.
The last bits of interesting landscape to the west.
