    • How much time for Rotorua and Taupo?

      Rotorua Oct 6, 2016 at 6:32 PM

      After visiting Coromandel we have booked 4 nights in Rotorua, thinking to visit Taupo from there, return to Rotorua our " homebase" then continue on to the Hawke's Bay area, perhaps around Napier or Wairoa. But now I am re-thinking. Just booking one hotel for 4 nights makes it feel like home, but we would travel to Taupo, return to Rotorua, and then when driving to Hawke's Bay, travel through Taupo again... How much is there to see in and near Taupo, vs, in and near Rotorua ? Should we leave the reservation as it is, or change, and stay one or even 2 nights in Taupo ? This way we don't drive back and forth... Any recommendations?

    • 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.
