I was hoping to say in Russell from the 4th to 6th February 2010 and then leaving on the 6th to go to Whangarei to catch up with some friends.
Does this area get very busy around this time and should I expect very busy roads ? I also read that there can be quite a few protestors. Is the area best avoided at this time ? I haven't booked any accomodation yet but my first 3 favourites are fully booked so guess I may have trouble getting accomodation. I tried Russell Cottages but they are looking very pricey at 300NZD for a 1 bedroomed cottage.
