Navigation for Summer Report

Monday to Friday, 7am - 10am

28 December 2009

We kick off the 2009 season of Summer Report with a bang. We're travelling to Cape Reinga, go on a rescue mission in the Nelson hills and Simon begins his attempt to conquer the mighty Mount Aspiring near Wanaka. And who could forget, we go down to the farm and hear all about how to grow asparagus!
