My 15 year old son is competing in a waterpolo tournament in Auckland in a week so we have decided to throw together a family campervan trip around it. We will be in Auckland for about 4 days while he is playing, then we thought we would take of on a Griswald style road trip. There will be four of us, all active. My husband and I and our two boys 15 and 12.
At the moment we are planning on Rotarua for the maori culture + geothermal stuff. Maybe the Hobbiton and Zorb as well. Taupo to have a look and maybe do a jetboat ride. Waitomo - for the caves and gloworms. I would love to do the White Island volcano trip, but it might be a bit expensive. I am lobbying my husband that it will be a once-in-a-lifetime event and it's only money. Not sure how good that argument will go, but I got to try. I have read about the Hot Beach too, but maybe not in the middle of winter.
So if anyone could suggest things to do in Auckland, then a 6 day road trip it would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
