Help - driving tomorrow Hastings to Auckland what to see?

We are in Hastings and driving to Auckland unexpectedly. Flying out Monday night. Need a quick itinerary. Think we'd like to see Napier and some scenery. Could someone help with some suggestions?

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.
