NZ: Northland & Bay of Islands 10 days

Jump to last reply

My husband & I have traveled to New Zealand several times and are planning a trip there early next year. After flying to Auckland from the S.I. we are in Coromandel for a week. We've never been to the Bay of Islands, Northland area and plan to spend ten days there before returning to US. We'll have car and prefer to stay in one or two places and sightsee from there with days in between to just relax and enjoy the area we're in. That being said we're having trouble figuring out this part of the trip.
* Is it reasonable to drive from Coromandel to Russell in one day?
* We'd like to stay in Russell at least part of the ten days. If so, can we drive to Cape Reingo and return in a day?
* What are the "Don't miss" sights in the Northland area, especially the west side since we'd be on the east side? Kauri forest?
* If we stayed in a second place, what would be the best option?
Any help with fellow travelers if greatly appreciated.
