Some views of Kereru Station.

Kereru Station is a large station near the Northern end of the Ruahine Ranges.  I visited the station on a beautiful fine day in November of 2017.  The views of the surrounding Hawkes Bay hills are stunning.  Here are the best shots.

The Kereru Station Homestead paddock with sheds, backed by a view from the North of the highest points of the Ruahine ranges.

The nearer hills to the left are in front of the Ruahine Ranges, [which are behind..  they are the more northern parts of the range.]  These hills have outcrops of limestone on them.  Later fotos are from behind these hills and at the foot of the ranges shown.

Across the road you can see yards belonging to the station.  The part of the Ruahines visible behind are the last higher peaks before the ranges peter out to the North.

This is a view from the same hill.  We can see a field being prepared for cultivation.  We no longer grow barley as a cash crop.  This is a winter crop, probably of some kind of brassica.  Around here brassicas grow well and are a popular Autumn/Winer feed crop.

This is not a view of the Ruahines. It is in fact another range of hills climbing over 800meteres called the Gwavas.  It looks so beautiful in this sunny day with just a few convection clouds.

The goal of our expedition.  We are tucked under the Ruahine Ranges, quite high up in the foothills.  There is no electricity reticulation.  This is the first solar powered electric pump installation in Hawkes Bay.  It powers a water pump that pumps water for stock. [cattle and sheep]

From this high point we get a grandstand view of the Gwavas, with farmland stretching up to its base, bounded by some plantations of Radiata Pine.  The station has some forests of this pine.  It is only suitable for building if it is pumped full of chemicals.

Directly east there are no higher points.  Just endless fields of grass.

This little hollow collects water, and it is available all through summer.  It is the water the pump station pushes up to the tank attached to our water system.  This is very important as cattle and sheep cannot go many days without water.

This shot shows how close we are to the Ruahine Ranges.  It is taken from beside the solar collectors.

Cheers Chris the Pipemaker.
