    • How to do the Tongariro Northern Circuit in 3 days/2 nights

      Tongariro National Park Jul 17, 2014 at 2:31 AM

      I am looking to do the Tongariro NC in January 2015 with my girlfriend. Both of us are moderately fit and have hiked before. After looking at various descriptions of the trek, I am not sure how to split it up. We don't want to rush things and are planning on spending 3 days/2 nights on the circuit, but we cannot do 4 days as this does not fit into our itinerary.

      So which huts should we book to have the best possible experience (longer distances on the easier parts of the trek, more time in the rough parts and enough time to take pictures/enjoy the most scenic parts?

      Thanks a lot in advance!

    • Transport options from Mangatepopo to Whakapapa Village

      Tongariro National Park Jul 19, 2014 at 7:00 AM

      Can somebody please advice on transport options from Mangatepopo to Whakapapa village in the Afternoon in January 2015. I am looking to cut the Northern Circle Hike one day short.

      Is there any public transport?
      If not - can I schedule a private transport that picks me up around 4/5pm?

      Thanks a lot

      Bus from Palmerston North To tauranga

      by craic Online Now Mar 19, 2010 at 8:26 AM

      I might get the chance of a weekend in tauranga - good oh - so I checked the naked bus and they have reasonable fares but it is quite a long trip. This may be however because they have one change. Perhaps you have an hour to stroll around somewhere interesting - like matamata maybe.

      But I cannot get the site to tell me where the change will be.

      Can you help?

      A couple of questions

      by craic Online Now Nov 23, 2009 at 7:30 PM

      Hi - Is the train station close to the centre of the city in Palmerston North?

      Also, can I use my Australian seniors card for cheaper fares etc or as I am still a NZ citizen could I perhaps register for a local card?

    • Labour Day

      by Englischer Online Now Jul 30, 2008 at 9:49 AM

      Hi everyone, my wife and I will be staying in Palmerston North over the Labour Day weekend while we attend the rail centenerary celebrations at Fielding.

      On Labour Day itself, will the town be open as normal (shopping, bars, restos etc.) as we would like a quiet day before heading off for Auckland on the steam special on Tuesday 28th Oct.?

      Failing that, any suggestions as to how to spend the day without travelling on trains would be appreciated by my long suffering wife!
