The comedian climbs Mount Tarawera, one of a chain of volcanoes that erupted to devastating effect in 1886, annihilating the nearby Pink Terraces. His journey then takes him to the Waitomo Caves and a kiwi reserve in Hamilton, where the country's national bird is raised in safety before being released into the wild. Billy visits a gathering place where Maori learn about their culture and traditions, a sacred grove and an opencast gold mine.
This form of mining can leave the area looking ugly, but plans are in place to turn the pit into a lake once it is exhausted
