Starting in Auckland head North to the Bay of Islands to visit the nations birthplace and get out on the water. Then to the Coromandel for a night before heading to Rotorua for an action packed 3 days. Then a "Great Drive of New Zealand" around the East Cape to Gizzy for a night. Down to Art Deco Town, Napier for two nights, then a wine whistle stop at Martinborough before 3 nights in the Greatest Little City on Earth, Wellington. Now we start heading North, through ancient Whanganui, on to New Zealand's most beautiful mountain for a night. Leaving Mt Taranaki & we're off to Taupo via the The Forgotten Highway & Desert Road for 2 nights before one last run taking in Waitomo Caves and Hobbiton before two nights in Auckland. Phew.
