Today was another touring day. We visited the Northland refinery. They have a fabulous visitor centre which amongst other displays has a full model of the refinery. The model was built in Holland and was used during the construction phase. When there was any doubt as to how something should fit, the workers were referred to the model!
The refinery is across from Reotahi, the mountain tops have some ‘sculptures’ that look like humans. Maori folklore is that a woman cheated on her husband so he fixed his wife and children into rock. This refinery is unusual in that they allow you to walk along the surrounding beaches.
