Wife and I will be travelling over from AUS for a 5 night stay in north island from 31-Oct onwards.
I have been to south island before but first time in north island.
We will be flying to and from AKL.
Some ideas I had...
THU 31/10: Arrive AKL at night
FRI 01/11: Explore AKL city attractions/sights (ideas appreciated)
SAT 02/11: Drive to Rotorua (thermal springs etc) - stay overnight Rotorua
SUN 03/11: Daytrip from Rotorua to bay of plenty/ wineries
MON 04/11: Daytrip to Lake Taupo
TUE 05/11: Drive back to AKL .. catch flight around 1pm
Also looking at getting a hire car.
Any ideas/tip appreciated.
