The Hunter river was the most spectacular part of our November trip to New Zealand. It was iconic New Zealand fishing, all what the fishing journalists talk about. It was in the New Zealand "back country" where the fishing was in spectacular surroundings.
The hunter river flows through a valley which has only limted access. Some people helicopter in, others jet boat in during times when this is permissable, while others drive in using a 4WD, crossing 4 rivers and spending an intense 2 hours driving on roads which are used by Hunter Station to care for their cattle and sheep. Hunter Station allows access while staying in one of their huts. Col, Chris and I stayed at Boundary hut.
This video is a catalogue of our experience in the Hunter Valley.
