North Island


North Island Commentaires

Paihia is actually known as the Bay of Islands and is a warm coastal town. The bay has 144 islands and is beautiful.
Whangarei is a lot bigger than what we thought it would be. It has a cute city centre, and alot of surrounding suburban areas. It also has a small waterfront area. It is midway between Auckland and the Bay of Islands and a good place to lodge while exploring the surrounding areas.
One of the most interesting tours I've done on my world trip was Murray Baker's volcano tour of Auckland (www.geotours.co.nz). Price is around €40-45. Also useful if you're going on to Hawaii afterwards.
Napier is a really cute place to stay for a few days! There is loads to do including the spa (which is so cheap), the aquarium and mini-golf! There also seems to be a lot of dance classes happening - salsa was really fun. Pubs are good, but not really a clubby place! Had a really good time here!
Palmerston North is a beautiful place!
Taupos a very cool place - I would definitely recommend at least 3 days there. It has lots of free walks and stuff to do.
I did the day hike at Tongariro National Park. It was absolutely amazing - sooo beautiful! Bring lots of water and food. It's a small town.
I love Hastings so much, I stayed and worked there with my son, Kevin, in 2006 and 2007 and it was a great experience to work in the orchard farms, including a month working in a blueberry pack house. We made lots of friends from all over the world and learned some of their languages too. I really hope that one day I have the chance to go back there again or to work there again.
I was really dissapointed by Raglan. The town is REALLY small and the beach was nice, but not all the trouble that my friends and I put into getting there.
Turangi is a killer spot for the serious outdoor enthusiast. Tongariro crossing (ranked one of the best day hikes in the world) is just up the road along with tons and tons of fishing opportunities. Just a word of warning, I heard about a lot of cars being broken into here so be mindful of your stuff, especially fishing equipment. The hostels are nothing special but they suffice well enough. Anything you can't find in Turangi, you can find in Taupo up the road. I suggest walking straight to the Tongariro river with a big tungsten bead hare and copper and chucking it into the Major Jones pool!
Wellington is wicked. Loved it, you have to go.
Rotorua … Awesome place for Maori and NZ culture and history, but other than that a little boring for my tastes. Zorbing is a must do though!
Waiheke Island … I love it with all my heart, my home away from home.
Waitomo … This is a great area to relax in a beutiful countryside location. Take a trip to the local pub and ask the locals what there is to do. You'll be surprised how a day can turn into a week!! Just relax and go with the flow!
Mitimiti … It is the coolest secluded place and I am proud to say I am from there.
