I am a Kiwi living in UK. I have taken my husband to NZ on several occasions and we will be there again for a week after New Year. We fly into Auckland to pickup a rental car ... and are looking for suggestions in the general area.
We have been to the Bay of Island before and that area is great, we've also "done" Rotorua and Taupo. This time we will be a family with a 4yo and a Granny too. To go back to the BoI would be an easy option ... but is there anywhere I'm overlooking? Open to all suggestions!
