Pure, rugged, uncomplicated, honest, mystical and inspiring: living down here, it’s impossible not to be connected with nature. It’s this sense of connection that informs everything we do as we bring some of the story of our little corner of the world to you.


Home thoughts


It takes a lifetime to learn

the lay of this land:

river, creek, mountain, gully


Mt Roy, Treble Cone, Black Peak, Mt Burke

Mt Gold, Mt Maude, Motatapu, Matukituki


The lake, the lawn


Skylines, snowlines, fishing lines, washing lines:

the ties that bind

resonant, etched on your mind's eye,

your memory


After a long time living

breathing, here


You will know the daintiness

and fragility of birds

the clarity of light

and the certainty of frost -


After a life of standing in moonlit driveways and

dark gardens, craning to catch

the Southern Cross


You will know, and remember all this

so when you leave, you will feel the loss

the sing and pull of the line

that leads you
