The Innlet: When we finished tramping the Heaphy track, we stayed a week in Golden Bay at three different backpackers.  By far the most enjoyable was our four days at 'The Innlet', Collingwood.  While there we went kayaking, swimming in the sea where it was shallow and very warm, push-biked up to the spit, but best of all was the relaxing times sitting on the veranda, listening to the Tuis singing and chatting to the many vistitors.
