New Zealand Driving Map Auckland / Wellington / Auckland


Start: Auckland
Finish: Auckland
Recommended Length: 10 Days
Distance: 2029 km (1268 miles)

This round trip will satisfy your desire to see the best of the North Island. The marine and urban entertainments of Auckland lead on to the simple, seaside pleasures of the Coromandel Peninsula. After a taste of Tauranga’s sunny lifestyle, you’ll be fascinated by the steaming fumeroles and roaring geysers of Rotorua. Gisborne and Napier are all about vineyards, surf beaches and Art Deco architecture, while Wellington is a cultural experience that mixes New Zealand heritage with contemporary creativity. Explore the mysteries of the Whanganui River before you browse the gardens and galleries of New Plymouth. The magical underworld of Waitomo demands your attention on the way back to Auckland.
