We will be arriving into Auckland on the 06/09/2014 for our honeymoon and will be there until the 14/09/2014.
As we are on our honeymoon and being conscious of the time we have, we are going to confine ourselves to North Island.
We are looking to stay in Auckland - Central for 2/3 nights before moving on to check out Waitomo Gloworm Caves (Black Abyss Tour) and Hobbition.
Aside from someone who can suggest an itinerary that will involve seeing both these sights, can someone please assist with travel suggestions? I know that it might be beneficial to hire a car but I would like to avoid this if possible.
From what I can see it takes 3-4 hours from Auckland - Central to Waitomo Caves. Is there any nice places to see there and is Hobbiton close by? The reason why I make reference to Hobbiton is because a lot of tours manage to include the two and return to Hobbiton. The reason why we are not doing the tour is to take part in the black abyss experience.
We would also like to include some Moari experience if possible and all this needs to involve a return trip to Auckland at some point on the 14th as we depart for home then.
Can someone help? I know it's a massive ask but any advice would be greatly appreciated!
