We are staying at the Kaimanawa Lodge this new year, and they said a rental car is mandatory as there are no taxi/bus service in Turangi.
Driving on the left gives us the serious willies and we much rather take the Naked Bus service from Auckland-Turangi. Has anyone ever stayed in Turangi without a car?
We love to walk and our type of vacation is mostly sitting in restaurants or by the pool/lake. Is ignoring their advice a silly idea???
