Would love some advise, we want to celebrate my boyfriends birthday in NZ. we dont have much time but thinking of doing a 5 night trip from Sydney
we are planning on flying into Auckland and getting the bus to Rotorua. we will stay in Rotorua for 3 days.
My question is, we don't drive. Is it easy to get to sites etc via public transport? are taxis reliable? We want to do redwoods which according to google it looks like a bus goes there but we really want to do hells gate as well and see some of the thermal pools etc
we do realise it will be alot easier to rent a car, however we are only on our learners in aus, so its not possible.
Any advise is greatly appreciated!
