After a night at Dunedin, the next day we headed out to the Macraes gold mine, but on the way the snow was getting heavier and we were feared that we might get stuck in the snow, so we decided to skip it.

Plenty of snow on the way

We continued the trip to Waitaki Power Station, passing thru Oamaru where we will be staying for the night.

On the way, we drove passed a mountain of Limestone

Also we passed the Takiroa rock art site

When we arrived at the Waitaki power station, first thing we noticed is the spilling. The spilling could fill an Olympic pool in 4 secs.

At the end of the day, we headed back to Oamaru for the night.
