The Waihopai Spy Base isn't a known tourist attraction, but my visit provided a lifetime memory. Drive down Waihopai Valley road underneath alpine mountains and suddenly you come across two giant golf balls, in the middle of a paddock. It's a surreal experience. Only 5 minutes off the main road. But hush, hush.....
