Your Place - Kaikoura

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 1:20 pm on 24 April 2014

About half way between Cape Campbell and Christchurch, on a rugged part of the east coast of the South Island, a small peninsular extends 5 kilometers into the sea. It's the place, folklore has it, where Maui put his foot when he was fishing the North Island up from the ocean. No whaling takes place here now, but they are still the mainstay of the town's commerce - this is where visitors flock to see the whales, dolphins and seals that populate this part of the country. The area is also famous, at least within New Zealand, for it's crayfish. Welcome to Kaikoura.
