French Pass – Village

After clearing the pass we went and had a look at the village of French Pass. Lois went to school here for a bit and her Mum was the Postmistress.

The road from Rai Valley was put through in 1957 and is reported to be one of, if not the best, scenic routes in new Zealand.

Town Centre, mostly a holiday destination now but there are still farmers in the area plus fishermen. Pohutukawa flowering nicely.
