Northland are crying out for some tourism help that they say should be extended by the Government beyond the South Island.  

Earlier this month, the mayor, Northland Inc. and tourism industry leader Riki Kinnaird met with Stuart Nash and Kelvin Davis, asking for the $49 million kick start fund to include all regions throughout the country.  

Currently, it's only available for five South Island regions.  

They say they are still waiting. 

Duke of Marlborough owner Riki Kinnaird joined Mike Hosking.
