Hi, we are travelling from Melbourne to Auckaland and onto Whakatane in Feb 2012 for a wedding. We have 3 children 13,10 and 5years. We would like to stay maybe halfway between Auckland and Whakatane on the first night. We have been told it is about 4 hour drive from Auckaland to Whakatane so would like to breadk the journey for the kids. Any suggestions??
