Just looking at getting some feedback on our itinerary for New Zealand in December/ early January. We are finalising flights etc in the next few week and wanted to know if our stops are doable in the time we have.
26 - Depart Aus to Auckland
27 - Auckland (Recover from Jet Lag)
28 - Pick up car early AM and drive to either Thames or Pauanui (probably Pauanui)
29 -our points of interest are quick stop at hot water beach, Cathedral Cove and Cormmandel Town ( we love little towns with rich history and happily sit in a coffee shop the whole afternoon. So any other recommendations are appreciated.
30 - Today we will head to Matamata early - Hobbiton Tour (2:00pm?? or later tour)
31 - Matamata to Rotorua - We would like to stop into Tokaroa ( my husband flies RC planes and would like to stop at a club there) - an afternoon activity before New Year Celebrations in Rotorua
1 - Rotorua - Thermal Wonderland and a nature walk in the arvo or canopy tour
2 - Leisurely drive to Taupo to our accommodation
3 - We will be tackling Tongariro crossing today - I am most excited about this!
4- Recover from our hike ( i don't think we will be doing much at all)
5 - To Wellington at our leisure
