New Zealand Driving Map Auckland / Taupo / Auckland

Start: Auckland
Finish: Auckland
Recommended Length: 4 Days
Distance: 679 km (424 miles)

In just four days you’ll discover some of the North Island’s most unique features. Start with the vineyards and marine activities of Auckland, then head for Hamilton and a cruise on the peaceful Waikato River. Horses are a feature of the landscape around Cambridge, while the town of Tirau is a great place for shopping. Rotorua is always steaming with excitement, because the geothermal attractions never stop. Taupo offers more geothermal experiences, plus the chance to catch a trout. Then it’s time to delve underground and admire the cave formations in the Waitomo region. Check out Hamilton’s freeflight aviary on your way back to Auckland.
