    You come from Melbourne, but I have no idea if it's where you were born ( unless you have already mentioned it in a thread )
    Not sure I know that many places in NZ ( My aunty lives in Napier )

    But the photo is taken in 1950. The year is misleading. NZ is renowned for its old cars... Even today is not unusual to see30 or 50 year old cars on the road.

    I think the Hobbit was filmed in New Zealand; sounds about right, anyway...

    I remember hearing that NZ got a boost in tourism after the LOTR came out.
