we are spending 2 nights in Rotorua early december. We plan to arrive late pm..do the matai trip at night and following day do as many activities as we can. 3 young boys so lots to cover.Also plan to visit friends in Repora but only for couple of hours. When we leave the following day we want to get to Wai topu for the lady knox eruption at 10.15am. My dilemma is can we then back track to Repora and do visiting then or perhaps miss luge/gondola that afternoon before and do in Queenstown therefore freeing up time to get to Repora or perhaps skip POlynesian spa and do taupo Springs instead? As usual we are cramming lots in but will have a slower pace later on! Or maybe we should do polynesian spa the night we arrive???
