Beautiful spot tucked away down South Island? Somewhere between Dunedin and Invercahill?? What was the year?

It's Opua, tucked away in the Bay of Islands in the north of New Zealand. Very rare to see any ships there now, apart from the occasional cruise ship.

I believe Opua had the same reputation as Bluff for 'Things to do while ashore'?

Looks a bit like Port Chalmers just outside Dunedin to me.

Have to agree with Doxfordman. Looks good looks beautiful just as a Federal boat should be. First thoughts were of Port Chalmers but do think it is elsewhere but where I cannot hazard a guess

Trust me guys - it's neither Picton or Port Chalmers, definitely Opua.

Flyer, it is very simple.
You take your camera, go to Opua and take a photograph on the same spot.
Otherwise nobody will believe you..., and you live closer than most of us., also have a lot of time, so not a bad proposition.

Looks very much like Opua. Not enough housing in the picture for Picton.Also I dont think there was rail on the Picton wharf. Anyway both ports were a great place to visit.Although a long walk(stagger) back to the ship when in Opua
