Steve - the cat who thinks he's a lamb

This is the second story from our archives to hopefully bring a smile to the faces of our readers in this time of the coronavirus. It's about a New Zealand cat that goes by the name of Steve. He lives on a farm near the remote town of Ngamatapouri (nah-mat-a-poori) in New Zealand's North Island. Ngamatapouri's main claim to fame is that it's longest "No Exit" road in New Zealand...


Ngamatapouri is located on the crosshairs of the red spot you can see on this map, directly north of the town of Waverley

We can include Ngamatapouri on many of our New Zealand Vacations itineraries, including this one, the 16 day North Island & Best of South Island.

Or you might prefer a visit to another place, this one is called -


Yes, this place exists, also in a remote North Island location; it's claimed to be the longest place name in the world and New Zealand Vacations can arrange a visit there as well.

But before leaving Ngamatapouri, take a look at this video and you'll see that 'strange things are happening in Ngamatapouri'.
