We are travelling to NZ in early May to see the Bay of Islands. Plan so far is to fly to Auckland and hire a car.
Drive to the Bay of Islands, staying overnight on the way.
What route should be take?
Where could we stay on the way?
Day 2 we will drive to Paihai and we thought we would do the overnight Greatsights cruise.
Then thought 3 nights tn Paihai, doing day trips to Russell and maybe Cape Reinga etc
then drive back to Auckland for a night before flying home (we have been to Auckland before). What route should be take back to Auckland?
Would love to hear any thoughts on the plan so far, suggestions would be really welcome
