Many people choose to start their journey by heading North to the Bay of Islands, and some go as far as Cape Reinga Light House, the top of New Zealand. If you come back down the West Coast, you can pass through the Hokianga.
The Hokianga is in the Far North of New Zealand and is a very historical place. It includes my home town of Kohukohu, translated to Maori means "fog fog", and if there's a lot of fog (mist) in the morning, it's generally going to be a fine day!
Across from Kohukohu is Rawene, and you can cross the harbour by taking the local car ferry.
Thames is located about 90 minutes drive by New Zealand camper van from Auckland , and is known as the gateway to the Coromandel. This is the main shopping place on the Coromandel peninsula and it has a range of boutiques, a historical main street and a modern shopping mall called Goldfrields.
This city is known as the City of Sails, and as the name suggests, many Auckland's residents enjoy some form of water sports.
There are many points of interest, including:
- Kelly Tartons: a large underwater aquarium
- Waitakere Ranges: great place for trekking in native forests
- Queen Street: Auckland's central business and shopping district
- Waiwera Hot Pools: About 20 minutes drive north of Auckland
This is the Capital City of New Zealand, and you can visit the Bee Hive for a free guided tour.
Wellington is at the bottom of the South Island and you can catch the Cook Straight Ferry for the South island from here. To make a booking for the ferry, go to:
This is known as the "Garden City", and the botanical gardens in Hagely Park are a nice visit. The park is in the centre of Christchurch and covers several hectares.

Great scenery and hair raising adrenaline rides - steam boats on the lake to jet boating, Queenstown has it all!
Rotorua is famous for its Geothermal activity. Upon arrival, you will be greeted by a strong pungent sulphur smell.
Because the earth's crust beneath Rotorua is so thin, steamy geysers have popped up in many places. There are many walkways which allow you to view this amazing spectacle.
