    • 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?

      Bus from Palmerston North To tauranga

      Palmerston North 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

      Palmerston North 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

      Palmerston North 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!

      And Raetihi

      Ohakune Feb 3, 2008 at 5:07 AM

      My cousin has a holiday house in Ohakune and has offered to lend it to me. Which would be great because we did a school trip up here when I was just a kid and fell in love with this area.

      These days how does one get from Wellington to Ohakune. And from Ohakune to Raetihi?

      Cousin says house is a railway cottage so one presumes it is close to the railway line. But does the train still stop there?

      Web sites with travel info for NZ would be great. Want to do trips to lots of other places.

      Thanks for any help.

      Raurimu Spiral

      Raurimu Jan 18, 2007 at 6:37 PM

      Does anyone know if the Raurimu Spiral is better viewed in any particular direction. That is, if I am only travelling one way by rail, which would be preferred for viewing the Spiral: North to South, or South to North? Mostly from a photographers point of view. Thanks :-)
