... The museum was excellent, dedicated to the mighty kauri tree, the native giants of the north. We were astounded to see the size of the cross cuts of timber, and the displays of beautiful furniture made from this very sturdy wood, the history of the industry, artefacts and life-size reproductions of a pioneer sawmill, boarding house and gum-diggers huts. The mannequins in ...

... The major problem with that suggestion is that the airport is 20km south and we want to go north. So we refused, they had no other car available... it is a holiday period you know... In the end we decided they would go to the airport and get the car and we would take their office car to the hotel, collect our bags and by the time we returned, they would be back from the airport. that plan did work and so an hour later than planned we took off north.

    Very nice place, not right at beachfront but that also means that you don't hear much of the nightlife.
    Very well equipped rooms (kitchen with cutlery, pots, etc.). Spacious bathroom, balcony. Free Wi-Fi.
