Live from the CENTER of New Zealand!

Nelson, on the South Island, claims to be the Center of New Zealand. Alas, it turns out the actual center is in the middle of the Cook Strait. It's too bad you only find that out AFTER ascending the unbelievably steep hill to the viewing point and placard which (misleadingly) suggests you've made it. No, turns out you have to swim to get there. Forget it!
