Auckland Day Trips or overnights

We house trading to Auckland November 3-9 or 10 and would like to visit points North, such as Bay of Islands and points southeast such as Waitomo Caves. Are either of these destinations a day trip or should we plan on spending the night and if so, any suggestions?

We are 2 people in our 60's, looking for $120NZ or less. Prefer quiet, maybe nice view.

Hi there

You could do Waitomo definitely as a day trip, although a round trip via Waitomo and Rotorua with an overnight in one of those places would be a better option in my opinion.

For the Bay of Islands, you definitely need an overnight to make it worthwhile.

You should have no problems finding reasonable motel accommodation at that time of year at about NZ$120
