In the far north of the nation of Southland, which is in the region of south, lies Cape Blanco, the farthest north point in Southland. Cape Blanco was discovered in 1717 by the great explorer Sir francis Welington, he also got a city named after him (Welington). The area around the Cape in well treed, however the cape its self is completely treeless because of the high winds in the area. The Cape Blanco light house was established in 1898 to keep ships from the dangerous rocks of the coast, it also helps guide ships into the town of Blanco's harbor. In 1982 the area became a national park and the Blanco highway was extended to go into the park as a scenic drive, and a smaller road was built to the light house. This is were our journey starts.

Here is the Cape Blanco light house, which is at the very end of the cape. Here we take a tour of the light house and then begin our drive to the historic town of Blanco.

We now turn onto Blanco scenic highway.

The highway is very twisty, so the speed limit is only 30.

And now we are getting quite close to Blanco.
