Leave early tomorrow and have brunch in Napier, with a quick look around. Drive to Taupo for lunch (2 hours) and see one of the thermal parks on the drive to Rotorua, where I suggest you stay the night. The following day you'll have time to visit another park and/or Hobbiton or Waitomo depending on when you need to be at the airport. Normally it's a 3 hour drive to Auckland from Rotorua.Edited: 15 November 2014, 01:24
