Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria University, Wellington N.Z. Vol. 22, No. 4. April 27, 1959


After an extensive six weeks tour of Australia, during which time they visited Universities, students' hostels and community projects, a delegation of six Indonesian student leaders will spend three weeks in New Zealand as the guests of N.Z.U.S.A.

The Australian tour was a reciprocal visit. The Australian students were repaying hospitality accorded to a team of six who visited Indonesia for three months in 1956-57 vacation, as guests of the Indonesian Government.

The itinerary for New Zealand provides a three weeks tour, including visits to each university and agricultural college, and excursions in each of the two islands, one centered on Rotorua and the other on Queenstown. These excursions will give the delegation an opportunity of seeing something of New Zealand outside the main centres.

At the Dunedin end of the tour they will visit Roxburgh Hydro Station, New Zealand's biggest, and see the southern lake country. From Rotorua, apart from seeing thermal attractions, they will visit Tasman Pulp and Paper Mills, the largest in the southern hemisphere, the Wairakei geothermal plant, the only one of it's kind outside Italy, and also Huka Falls, the geyser country, the Hydro schemes at Atiamuri and Whakamaru, and the forest areas.
