From Nine To Noon, 11:25 am on 11 November 2020

A lesser-known corner of the Kahurangi National Park, on an elevated tussock plateau out of Nelson is known as Tableland. Trampers, prospectors, farmers and early pioneers have known this stretch of country, which has a diverse range of uses, from conservation to hydroelectric generation. Tramper, photographer and author Ray Salisbury talks to Philippa Tolley about his beautiful new book Tableland, which charts the area's history, land use and the characters synonymous with the region.
