Hi all, I'm wondering if anybody has done the drive from Lawrence to Dunedin via Lake Mahinerangi? (Waipori Road/Waipori Falls Road.) It's marked on my map as an unsealed road and I'm wondering if it's driveable in a regular car or 4WD only.
We need to visit farming relatives in Ettrick and St Bathans. Coming from Wanaka, we could go St Bathans - Ettrick - Dunedin on that route, or Ettrick - St Bathans - Dunedin via Middlemarch.
I've been through Middlemarch many years ago (memories hazy), never been through Lake Mahinerangi. What would you do?
