Walking the long way home

From Nine To Noon, 9:40 am on 11 October 2017

New Zealand's long-distance tramping route, Te Araroa, has been described as the greatest adventure there is in this country - and should be on every Kiwi's bucket list. For Bruce Hopkins it is the inspiration and the location of a journey he's about to take over five months, to carry his father's and his brother's ashes south and eventually home to Stewart Island. Nine to Noon will follow Bruce's journey in a series of chapters in our reading segment from 13th November. The series, The Long Way Home, will also have its own webpage and will be downloadable as a podcast from 16th October.
