Hey all I'm considering going down to Timaru for the last day of 2016 (it's a Saturday!) and spending the day there at the Caroline Bay Carnival. Used to go every couple of years as a kid. It's pretty good, worth the trip for those who haven't been before :) http://www.carolinebay.org.nz/day6/
More than welcome to share a ride, I have 3 spots in my car. Stay the day, anyone keen?
