      3. Is BBQ in NZ charcoal or electricity ? What do I need to buy if I want to do BBQ at my accomodation? For eg, BBQ utensils, butter? oil? seasoning? etc Do I hv to stock all these items up? What are the basic seasoning provided there?
      4. Is coffee provided at guesthouse, backpackers, hostels in the morning? I would like to hv coffee before I drive to wake up and need to get coffee somewhere if possible!

      OR can someone tell me what are the things I hv to stock up at the supermarket before I start my road trip becos these items are not provided at any accomodation in NZ.

      5. I intend to rent a car to stock up at a cheaper price for travel. I hv heard of fuel savings programme at supermarket in NZ and wonder what is this about?

      6. Where can I buy bluff oysters if I am not intending to drive up to bluff. I would love to try local seafood, and so far I have only heard of bluff oysters. Can someone tell me more on what type of local seafood and fish I should buy and try at local supermarket? I heard NZ has lots of such good food and I am getting hungry reading alone! THANKS.

    • Rotorua to Lake Taupo Maori scenic rock cruise

      by lkstacey Online Now Apr 21, 2012 at 8:36 AM

      Hi, I am going to Auckland on 24 Apr and intend to drive from Rotorua to Lake Taupo to do a 2pm Maori scenic rock cruise. I would like to find out whether should we visit the (1) Wai-O-Tapu Thermal Wonderland, or (2)Te Puia thermal village cum culture show for the 10.15am, then drive straight to Lake Taupo. We are not sure how long it will take to do (1) or (2) as we have never been to Auckland and would like to experience thermal village and if possible culture show, then take a cruise. Please advise what to do in Taupo for a family with two kids age 5 and 9. Thank you.
