Road between Rotorua and Taupo

What is the drive between Rotorua and Taupo like? We are staying in Taupo but considering going to the Maori experience at Te Puia ... just wondering what the drive back in the dark will be like.

It is an easy drive and takes about one hour. It should not be busy at the time of night you will be travelling after the show.

Quite dark but no worries, take extra caution and drive slow is the key to be safe.

We did this stretch 10 days ago and there some roadworks going on in a few parts. So you could take some extra time.
