NZ North Island Itinerary Critique

Jump to last reply

Following a 2 week tour of the South Island with Active Adventures (lots of hiking, some kayaking and biking), I'm planning a couple of more relaxing weeks on a self drive of the North Island in March 2016. Here's my preliminary itinerary -
3 nights Wellington
2 nights Napier (gannet colony unless Mid-March is too late to visit)
2 nights Tongariro Nat'l Park (hike T. Alpine Crossing)
3 nights Rotorua (visit Waitamo Caves on way to or from)
3 nights Auckland
3 nights Russell
Return car and fly home from Auckland
I'm interested in nature, all things Hobbit, Maori culture etc.
Does this sound like a good starting point?
Thanks for any advice!
