Visiting family(wedding) in Whangarei for 3 nts Nov. 25, renting car and plan on taking 7 day trip south of Whangarei (NOT SOUTH ISLAND).
I need help!!!
Want to do everything, like adventure but not extreme sports, love caves, mineral springs, very reasonably priced spa experiences, history, exploration. Will have a car but from US so a little challenging driving in NZ but have done before.
Rotorua seems to have lots to do in and around.
Drive to Waitomo from Rotorua or stay in Waitomo to do caves?
Don't want to zig zag all around so basically travel from Whangarei for 7 days and include 2 or 3 nights in Rotorua with 4 to 7 more days to ????? Then head back to Whangarei on day 8??
