On Saturday December 6, Mike’s weekly travel slot on Newstalk ZB’s Jack Tame Show turns the spotlight on the fish hook fastened to the top of the South Island, Farewell Spit.


The Farewell Spit Eco Tour unearths a wealth of stories, from Maori legends to the site of the first meeting between Maori and Europeans. Learn how this spit, the longest natural sand bar in the world, is actually the by-product of erosion to the Southern Alps. Plus, incredible wildlife, from sun-bathing fur seals to  thousands of migrating birds colonising the spit as a half-way hotel, including the bar-tailed godwit.
