Motoring itinery so far: Sept 3rd to Auckland to Waitomo Caves, to Rotorua (stay 2 nights), to Taupo, onto Napier (1) Gisborne (1) Te Araroa (1) Whakatane (1) then to Pauanui for 7 nights. We enjoy seeing natural beauty, waterfalls, lakes, etc. Hobbiton and glow worm caves. Art deco, antiques, coffee shops, bakeries etc. Is Rotorua the best place to stay 2 nights or is another better?
Have to stick to schedule as booked into Pauanui September 10th.
Thanks so much for your replies!
