    Gravel roads : SI & NI

    Guys, looking for some recommendations for routes / roads pls

    Does not have to be 4wd, just as long as it isn't tarred

    Stuff like Danseys Pass and Hakataramea Pass.

    We have done the main Molesworth road down Awatere valley and also the Rainbow road.

    Long way away but old motu road . opotiki to matawai doc camp site at the start of otipi track that runs over to motu river. Unsure what the track condition is like at the moment, or the road that goes from wairoa to murapara might as use this road while its still open to the public.
    Most roads around Gisborne are half sealed and half metal

    They are trying to get rid of the great walk and huts from around the lake. So it can't be far away

    Have done few in SI
    Nevis
    Mavora
    Ashburton Lakes

    Worth a look we went in our 40 series never used 4wd but always peace of mind as a bit of rain could bugger you up in a car.
