If your looking for a long drive out in the wops (sticks, countryside) this may be the trip for you. As beautiful as the drive is, I went completely solo and found it an average drive. I passed many fields of cows and sheep and saw very little sign of life. The Pacific Ocean was lovely to see and this... More

Last summer we travelled Opotiki-East Cape and this year we completed the road trip - Napier-East Cape - countless stops along the way, gorgeous camp sites, super friendly locals. Make the effort and make this the road trip the kids will not forget. Take your time, remember fuel stops, remember to keep speed down, learn about the history - respect... More
