    #5 Soaring rock faces in this fjord
    #11 A basic shelter not fit for a king though three dwell nearby
    #12 The Shouting Goat Hut
    #13 The realm of the leatherwood trees
    #14 This Eyre hut is freshly orange
    #15 This hut at 1556 m looks out over a desert
    #16 Near "Guard" Rock in The Love Range
    #17 Great early views and Ruahine weather
    #18 Somewhere between Trudge and Enchanted flows
    #19 You might get Dusty on your way to this hut
    #20 Near an ignimbrite gorge that is home to whio
    #21 This lake shows off for NZ's tallest peak
    #22 Glacial fed, a traditional mahinga kai
    #23 A layer of calcium carbonate settled on the lake bed
    #24 From the Hop and Dob
    #25 In a hanging valley
    #26 Falls from 979 m
    #27 Known for a lost species of moth

    8,10,12,27 and 28 to go.
    @ebf do you reckon @Stocky scrolled across the map forever to find them all.
    If he did he is very patient.

    That would be worse than a needle in a haystack I think @erniec. We dedicated the better part of an entire afternoon to googling the clues and scouring the topo map for the places.
    We got 29. I'm glad I'm not OCD... Just one last d&%n bl##dy clue.. LOL

    You are right have been going since late arvo too.

    Hint if after 9 it is a glacier.

    When you find #9 please let me know.
    If you haven't got #9 is not a river and its on the coast. If your really stuck flick me a pm but will leave any actual answers off here so people can give it a go first.

    A few clues for the ones that may cause a bit of extra confusion due to some clerical issues.
    The twitter post doesn't mention it but FB says 11-20 are Huts and 21-30 are Lakes
    #10 requires the looking at the post the clues are in.
    #19 is supposed to say Dusky not Dusty and has been corrected on their FB
    #20 is at the correct named hut but in the wrong island so if its not at the hut you thought
    #21 #22 could be confused with each other and #22 and #27 could also be confused.

    Nope used the search function once I figured out the clues to jump to the appropriate clues although I did spend a stupid amount of time searching the Chatham for a clue.
