If you are into motor vehicles - then the place to have been last weekend was the 'Kaikoura Hop'.

My learned colleague 'CMM' - with Mrs CMM - were there and have forwarded the following photographs.
The 'Hop' is based in the Kaikoura Racecourse and during the weekend Kaikoura Helicopters Ltd operated their Robinson R44 Clipper II ZK-HLE2 (c/n 10466) and their Aerospatiale A 350 BA ZK-HJV3 (c/n 2846) from there offering scenic flights.
A little further North at Hapuku - just where SH1 rejoins the coast - is the depot for the helicopters supporting the road/rail earthquake repairs up the Coast.
Parked up there were the South Pacific Helicopters (2016) Ltd's Bell 206B JetRanger II ZK-HBO2 (c/n 570).
The Alpine Group Ltd's Aerospatiale AS 350 B2 ZK-HRM2 (c/n 2721).
And the Eurocopter EC 120 B ZK-IFR2 (c/n 1312) of South Pacific Helicopters (2016) Ltd.
