Thanks Keith, Nohuhu and Terry.
Keith, you raise a good point about lack of suitable kayaking facilities. Talking with other kayakers, it seems the authorities turn a blind eye to bush camping, which is the only real alternative for kayakers keen on exploring the park. The official campground is located at one end of the park, making it impossible to explore the park on day trips. We had previously camped in an overhang that was obviously used for camping by others. I guess the low numbers of kayakers overnighting in the park hasn't drawn the authorities attention.
Very nice! Do you have any close ups with your camping gear on the hakas for this trip?
I didn't take any onboard pics this trip and though I had the Gopro it doesn't work too well with the SD card still sitting at home in the computer...D'Oh!!!
My setup hasn't changed from my previous post. Was there anything you wanted more detail on?

If it´s not raining I am sleeping in open air, just in a sleeping bag. Is there any reason you can´t do it in Australia? I might have to use something against the mosquitoes, but last summer there hardly were any!
I guess you have more need for a shield against the sun in daytime. I usually only use a cap.
The mossies here can be very bad as well. On my first overnighter I had to get into the bivvy at dusk as the mossies were swarming. We also tend to get heavy dews at night and sleeping in the open usually means you wake up wet even if it hasn't been raining.
