We've got 5 nights in NZ, flying in & out of Auckland. Thinking about spending some time in Taupo.
1) How long of a drive is it from Auckland?
2.) Once there would we need a car? If not, how else could we get from Auckland to Taupo without driving?
3.)Top sites to see in Taupo?
4.) Would you recommend one night or two?
We've booked this trip very last minute so am just trying to sort out the itinerary. We leave this Friday.
