D'Urville Island is a Department of Conservation-managed island near the north-western "edge" of the Marlborough Sounds at the top of New Zealand's South Island.
It's a fantastic place to visit and around 45 minutes flight from Wellington [in a C172]. The day was awesome, with hardly a breath of wind anywhere, so very smooth flying conditions.
First up are a couple of photos. Probably one of the few times I've put a selfie up on this blog [be grateful I suppose!]. BTW - the clou dint he first photo was the most I saw all day!
Following the images is a video of the arrival.
