I am visiting New Zealand for the first time in March and can't wait. However have planned some long drives that may or may not be do-able, so any advice would be great.
I want to leave Auckland early and head to Paihia, but via the Waipoura Kauri Forest and Hokianga Harbour. Dont mind arriving in Paihia in the evening, but not too late. Is this possible.
The other main concern is Paihia to Coromandel, again is this possible? leaving early and arriving late, or would it be better to stop in Thames?
Thanks folks, any help will be much appreciated!
