Vanished World of the Awamoko Valley

This morning we headed off early to visit the Havoc Bacon factory shop in Waimate. We all left armed with bacon, sausages and pork for a latter date. We then moved not far away to the next NZMCA park in the Awamoko Valley.

After lunch most of us headed of to look at some geological sights by visiting the Vanished World Centre.  Most of these rocks date back several millions of years and are amazing to view.  Bones of large penguins and whales have been fossilized in the rocks.
