My fiance and I are heading up to Russell to honeymoon, from the Auckland airport, via bus. Now, does anyone know if the ferry has luggage restrictions? Will they allow us to bring mammoth suitcases on board? And also, is it a tough trek from the bus stop to the ferry?
Once in Russell, we wanted to go out to Waitangi and up to the lighthouse on the Cape. Does anyone know of an inexpensive way to get to the treks from Russell, without having to be on a tour? My fiance and I just want to go hiking, without a tour guide....and go at our own pace. Are there any places to rent cars in Russell?
