Road Map - Haast

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:22 pm on 18 November 2015

We are off to the West Coast for today's roadmap, to an area that is considered to be the be final frontier. The Haast region spans about 40kms from Jacksons Bay to the township of Haast. It's located about 142kms north west of Wanaka and 140kms south of Franz Josef Glacier. It has about 300 residents and was so remote that the only way in and out was by plane or boat before the roads were built.
