We dont have many deserts in New Zealand
so I took the opportunity to tell my home schooler about the one we do have

see websites below
and then i recalled the times I had travelled down it as a child with my parents while on holiday
they told me to be on the watch out for wild boars I dont know if other animals live there or not
