Friendly people, love rugby and visited a church
We booked the Hobbiton trip with Zealandier’s tours directly. This is not to be missed. Our tour guide Grant kept us informed all day. It was quite a hot day and there is a fair bit of walking on a gravel pathway but wow what a set! At the end of the tour you get a free beer in the Green Dragon pub. On the way back we were taken to a waterfall and a honey shop . Although we were in port until 7:15pm rather disappointing that the local shops closed at 5 so we didn’t have time to wander around
Hobbiton! Didn’t see too much of the town though😟

We did the White Island Volcano excursion. Makes me sad now to think about all the people who died two weeks later..

This is our home town and we were proud to show it off! It was a stunning day at the Mount.

We rented a car and drove over to Rotorua and spent the day at Skyline Rotorua doing the luge tracks which was great fun. They also have a beautiful restaurant at the top with great views of the lake.

The intinerary introduced us to a new port in NZ, Tauranga, and we absolutely loved the visit here. The magnificent beach with its adjacent alfresco cafes was stunning, and the climb up Mt Manganui presented a vista well worth the effort.

We walked around Mount Maunganui which took just under an hour. Headed back to the port to get a bus into Tauranga (too far to walk). I needed to get my glasses fixed and was super impressed when the store fixed them for free while I waited.
