Bush Telegraph - - FOCUS ON FARMING -

What­ever youore do­ing this week­end you wonot want to miss watch­ing the pRV Ex­plor­ers Chas­ing 100 Sun­sets doc­u­men­tary on Choice TV.

Filmed in Tararua, the doc­u­men­tary is one of a se­ries of six that have been filmed around New Zealand.

An ini­tia­tive spon­sored by the NZ Mo­tor Car­a­van As­so­ci­a­tion (NZMCA) and pro­duced by Spot On Pub­li­ca­tions, the se­ries fol­lows an Auck­land cou­ple as they travel New Zealand in a mo­torhome.

The pro­gramme was filmed over four days and fol­lows them as they travel the dis­trict vis­it­ing many of our towns and pop­u­lar vis­i­tor spots, such as the Tui Brew­ery, Pahiatua, Pukaha Mt Bruce Na­tional Wildlife Cen­tre, Pon­garoa, Aki­tio, Waihi Falls, Dan­nevirke and Woodville be­fore they con­clude their trip with a visit to Norse­wood.

Tararua Dis­trict Coun­cil, eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment and com­mu­ni­ca­tions man­ager, Mark Maxwell says, for some time there has been a no­tice­able in­crease in mo­torhome vis­i­tors.

pFor me this a great op­por­tu­nity to grow this mar­ket and show­case the ben­e­fits of get­ting off the beaten track in Tararua.

Mr Maxwell says coun­cil worked closely with the pro­duc­ers to de­velop their itin­er­ary, which in­cluded vis­it­ing many pop­u­lar vis­i­tor spots and pro­vided the op­por­tu­nity to meet with a num­ber of the lo­cals.

pThey cer­tainly packed a lot into the four days they were here, he said.

The pro­gramme will screen on Satur­day 10th Novem­ber on Choice TV at 1.30pm and will be avail­able later on Choice on De­mand.
