... on top, delicious!!!! Beautiful place to spend the day or 2 (I understand you can buy a pass that lasts 2 days) take the kids, go with mates, take some time to really appreciate the beauty and nature at its best.
There is the option to self-guide around the park, but we were glad we went with the guided tour as it was a great way to learn more about NZ flora and fauna (of which we knew very little before arriving!).
