North Island in October '18

Hi TA Friends,

5 of us are in North Island for 7 nights, arriving at Auckland on 17th October & leaving from Wellinston for Queenstown.

Wanted your guidance on a few things.

Tentatively our plans are to stay in Auckland for the night [1] & drive to Paihia [1] - 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 [1] & then drive

to Rotorua [1] 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 ?

Fly from Rotorua to Wellington [2] 2 nights probably visit a wineyard & taste some wines & then South Island.

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.

regards
