Further south were getting worried that we were about to run out of petrol (refused to pay 1.90 per litre in the rural bits but were starting to regret this!). Managed to avert another van related disaster and found one for a lot cheaper after a while that was actually open on a Sunday!
Drove down towards Dargaville (main town on the west coast) and out west to Baylys Beach which is the largest driveable beach in NZ apparently
Into Dargaville which was not the most impressive town we have seen and headed out and further south back onto the highway 1 (basically the way we had come up). Had to find a phone to do loads of phone calls tonight (and make the most of cheap calls here). Found a great place to camp just outside Warkworth (no castle here like there is at home though!) at Snells Beach. Literally parked next to the beach and toilets nearby (its as if they organised it like this for us!) Rang home and Spain and my gran which was lovely to talk to everyone and get the latest.
