Some scary sumps but great white water in NZ

Discovered some crazy geology on the Tarawera out here in NZ. Whole river sumps underground to emerge in the middle of an enormous cliff. Some great white water though.

I'm looking at the idea of a trip to NZ in 2018/19 (when one of my pensions pays out a lump sum!!).
Is there a guidebook available to NZ white-water?

Jerry, as Mike said, that is the guidebook to NZ however there is a lot of stuff not in it. There is an online guide here: http://rivers.org.nz/nz

PM me if you are coming out, I can give you a hand and point you in the right direction if you want. I'm based in Auckland, however I might be heading down South next year, but either way happy to help.

Thanks, Patrick. this support would be greatly appreciated.
I'll contact you nearer the time, once plans firm up a bit. I'm probably looking at the Xmas period 2018/19.
Best Wishes!
