Fiordland and BeyondThis book tells of the incredible journey of 81 days, undertaken by a Father and Daughter to kayak around the South Island of New Zealand. On the 29th April 2007, Melanie and Max set out from Jackson Bay, not knowing that they were embarking on a trip that would take them around 2,750 kilometres of some of New Zealand’s most rugged coastline.

This story tells of their fears, their doubts, and the joys that were all part of the journey. The places they visited and the people they met along the way makes for a fascinating story.
