In one month me and my boyfriend will be heading to NZ. We will fligh into Auckland, than will be travelling one week on the North Island, than go south. Here is our planned itinerary for the North Island:
we arrive in the afternoon in Auckland. We will be there 4 days, recover from the jetlag,
sight seeing, Maybe daytrip to Coromandel.
head south to Matamata, Hobbinton Tour in the afternoon, stay for the nigth
to Rotorua early in the morning, sightseeing and in the evening Hangi
30 + 31/10
Tongariro National Park. Is it worth staying two nights if you will not do the crossing? We like walks for one or two hours, but we've never done trekking before, so we are not quite sure what to do.
1 + 2/11
Whanganui and Whanganui River, jetboating. Is there time to go to Stratford and discover the Forgotten World Highway?
arrive in Wellington in the morning. We have planned to catch the 2:30 am ferry on Monday 4/11 to Picton.
Please comment. Advices are welcome ;-) Many thanks in advance
