276 363 North Island Themed Highways For more information visit newzealand.com/int/themed-highways in Auckland and travels north, tracing both coasts to Cape Reinga and back. Highlights include a procession of beautiful beaches, opportunities for fishing, surfing, diving and dolphin encounters; cultural experiences at Waitangi; forest hikes and craft shopping. Pacific Coast Highway: Linking The Coromandel, Bay of Plenty and Eastland with Auckland in the north and Hawke’s Bay in the south, covering spectacular coastlines, forest wilderness and grape growing districts. The cities of Tauranga, Gisborne, Napier and Hastings will satisfy your urge to wine, dine and shop. Thermal Explorer: Running between Auckland and Hawke’s Bay and travelling through the volcanic centre of the island. Discover the Waitomo caves, geothermal areas in Rotorua and Lake Taupo, the amazing Tongariro National Park and Hawke’s Bay Wine Country. When combined, the Pacific Coast Highway and Thermal Explorer are known as The Great New Zealand Touring Route. Forgotten World Highway: While it’s only 150 kilometres long, the Forgotten World Highway (otherwise known as State Highway 43) is a memorable driving journey. Built on 19th century bridle paths, the highway connects Taumarunui to Stratford. The route wriggles its way over four mountain saddles, through an eerie one-way tunnel and along a sinuous river gorge. 790 159 359 714 508 286 650 971 299 189 187 567 348 299 479 800 113 672 1121 905 717 360 574 711 350 29 737 1107 996 604 296 485 799 438 117 280 494 835 637 387 748 1058 578 445 360 525 670 329 322 643 376 745 607 195 555 876 308 181 424 527 721 189 616 255 331 544 508 520 361 682 321 Blenheim Christchurch Dunedin Franz Josef Greymouth Haast Invercargill Milford Sound Mt Cook Nelson Twin Coast Discovery Highway: This route begins

Tauroa Point (Reef Point)

Rawene Aotearoa, New Zealand New Zealand’s extraordinary geography offers a hugely diverse range of unique things to do, which makes it easy for you to actively experience the breathtaking landscape in all its purity. Whether you’re kayaking, horse-riding, cycling, skiing, wine tasting, or simply relaxing you will be surrounded by world-class scenery second to none. Auckland & Northland Auckland is the largest city in New Zealand but it is the diversity of experiences in such close proximity that makes the region unique. From black sand beaches to amazing dining, rain forests to shopping. Views from the Sky Tower are amazing both day and night. The Waitangi Treaty Grounds and Kerikeri are great places to learn about New Zealand’s history. Northland is well known for its magnificent native forests, including Waipoua, home of the giant kauri tree - Tāne Mahuta. Western North Island Visit the summit of snow-topped, volcanic, Mount Taranaki or explore national park that surrounds the mountain, or kayak and journey down the Whanganui River – New Zealand’s longest navigable waterway. For an adrenalin rush try a rafting trip on the Rangitikei River. All three of the region’s cities are known for their beautiful gardens, art galleries and innovative museums. Opononi
