Continue on to Hawkes Bay and Havelock North before arriving in Napier, the art deco capital of New Zealand. On arrival check in at hotel for overnight stay.
Today after breakfast visit the largest mainland gannet colony in the world. Also visit Cape Kidnappers Gannet Beach Adventures. On this unique four hour eco-adventure you will get to experience one of the largest and most accessible mainland gannet colonies in the world. You’ll be pulled on a trailer from the back of a vintage tractor along the beach to the Black Reef Colony – where you’ll have the chance to see the birds in their natural habitat. Continuing on to the Cape, you’ll break for 90 minutes which enables visitors the chance to picnic, swim or enjoy a scenic walk to the Plateau Colony.
Today we will be crossing the Ahimanawa Ranges and you arrive into the town of Taupo sitting on New Zealand’s largest lake, Lake Taupo – a gigantic volcanic caldera formed during one of the world’s largest ever eruptions. Here you can enjoy the whole host of activities such as bungy jumping, sky diving, fishing for trout in the lake and rivers, kayaking, sailing, horse riding and walking and hiking to name but a few.
The drive today takes you through the city of Rotorua, famous for its bubbling mud pools and Maori culture. Wai O Tapu Thermal Wonderland and the Waimangu Volcanic Valley are well signposted on the highway between the two towns. On Rotorua’s lake front Volcanic Air Safaris offer scenic flights over Mt. Tarawera or for a longer trip to White Island, one of the most active volcanoes in the region. The Rotorua Museum and Blue Baths in the Government Gardens offer one of the best displays of any museum in the country. Focussing on local history the eruption of Mt. Tarawera in 1886 is brought to life.
After breakfast, drive from Rotorua to Auckland which takes you through the heart of the Waikato and its rich agricultural land. Continue on a little further to arrive into Auckland City, your destination for the night. Rest of the day free to explore the city by own.
