Hi TA Friends,
Wanted your guidance on a few things.
Tentatively our plans are to stay in Auckland for the night  & drive to Paihia  - is
1 night & perhaps 1 1/2 days adequate ? What are the places of interest to see there ?
Thereafter drive back & spend a night in Auckland  & then drive
to Rotorua  in the morning - wanted to get an insight into the Maori culture, the geysers - again is 1 night & perhaps 1 1/2 days adequate ? What are the places of interest to see there ?
From the above you will see we are spending 6 nights & have 1 day of the 7 which we could spend in ADDITION at Paihia or Rotorua . Which should it be - that is the question ? &
what are the highlighted "must see - must do" during this trip ??
Your help would be appreciated.
