We left Dargaville Saturday morning without further delay, it being a very uninspiring town, and drove to the Kauri Museum at Matakohe. This was an excellent museum with massive kauri trunks showing the age of the tree, machinery used in the old felling years and hundreds of examples of the gum they used to get from live kauris and from underground …
... gibt es Bier und Wein auch im Supermarkt zu kaufen, was aber auch zu komischen Situationen führen kann: Alkohol darf zwar ab 18 konsumiert werden, aber die Verkäufer sind berechtigt, nach einem Ausweis zu fragen, sofern man unter 25 aussieht. Nun glaubt zwar (leider) niemand mehr, dass Michi so jung wäre, bei Judith war das aber einige Male anders, so gut erhalten, hach! Problem für uns war nur, dass bei Ausländern lediglich der Reisepass als Ausweis akzeptiert wird, und, nachdem ...
Just a very short blog for today as I'm nackard! Today we drove from hot water beach down to the bottom of the coromandel peninsula and then drove north for 400kms to Paihia, a town in the bay of Islands, of course seeing some beautiful sights along the route. We stopped off by a little stream for lunch along the way where we were joined with a load of chickens who must have been able to smell the chicken noodles we were having! Once we arrived in the town centre in ...
... to explore and we’ve only scratched the surface. I can see how the energy of the waves, air and light can get under your skin here. And then there’s the people. Thanks to John and Trude who we got along really well with, we were exposed to other New Zealanders, who welcome guests and don’t mind when we totally destroy their names with our pronunciation glitches – ...
An early start saw us leave the Cosy Cottage just after 8am (early for us!) and head for the thermal wonderland (their description, not ours) of Wai-O-Tapu. An hour's stroll around the park saw some fantastic coloured thermal pools and some not so nice coloured mud pools. Then we dashed off to the Lady Knox Geyser which is triggered to erupt every morning (for the past 80 years!) at 10:15am. It sounds a little fake but they actually put some soap like substance in it which induces ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsOceans Resort & Hotel Tutukaka
Great value at 99 dollars, there was little point in paying another 50 dollars for harbour side for one night when it gets dark at 6.00 pm. Room was very spacious, with a large bed and a good shower. With the sun out on that side late into the day it was also very warm, I suspect the other side would have cooled down much quicker.
