Rippling Motueka River

Motueka River Valley

Nelson/Marlborough

Liam, 9

Imagine walking down a short track for a few minutes, and then finding a lovely rippling river as I said in the caption. Although sometimes deadly in floods, in perfect conditions it can be the eighth wonder of the world. In sunny weather not many people appreciate it, but the cicadas chirping is probably the ninth wonder of the world (although we make it white noise). Then hey if you're lucky, you will find the odd Monarch Butterfly. Put that all together, and that is what I call the Top Outdoor Spots competition winner.
