We spoke to new owner of The Flying Pig Café, Sara Kingsbury, about her exciting adventure! The Flying Pig Café in Duntroon is an iconic, brightly painted café on the Alps 2 Ocean Cycle Trail, and is a fabulous place to stop for a bite to eat with everything made and baked on-site.

Amber and Patrick opened their glamping experience in February 2017 and their love and passion for what they do has grown from then. We spoke with Amber about why they created their secluded getaway in the stunning Waitaki valley, who glamping is for and, importantly, what you should bring when you go glamping!

We’ve been working with Kat and Dan since 2013 and it has been an absolute delight! We thought it was about time we chatted to Kat and learn all about her background in Duntroon, and what drives her passion to host Alps 2 Ocean cycle guests.

Rising above the tragedy of the Pike mine collapse, Blackball is the gateway to the new Paparoa track and with its construction it attracted two of the locals Pat and Jane who had already contributed to the personality of the township in many ways.

Tucked on the hillside close to the centre of town is Noah’s Ark Backpackers, providing refuge and company for many travellers. In recent months we have placed groups with the backpackers and it became obvious we needed to go and visit Lynda and her partner Harry.

The Paparoa Track has a strong attraction for both walkers and cyclists alike, and the track designers were focused on building this trail to maximise opportunities for locals to respond to these opportunities.

In a rugged environment like the West Coast, containers seem to be an obvious and ideal choice of accommodation, and it was a delight to stay, complete with beautiful weather and a walk on the next door beach.
