Punakaiki to GoldenBay, South Island, New Zealand

We spotted a sign further along the road indicating the fault-line Upthrust where the earth's surface cracked during the Murchison earthquake. One side of the crack rose over 13 feet. We left the very scenic Upper Buller Gorge at O'Sullivans bridge where we crossed the Buller River once again and took photos up and down the river. We were now about to enter dairying country.  Select the photo below to see the view from the other side of the bridge.
