My family wants to see several things while in the Rotorua area. We will be coming in from the north (through Matamata). We want to see Kakahi Falls, go on the skyline sky rides at Mt. Ngongotaha, see the geysers at Waiotapu, see Haku falls, craters of the Moon, and the glowworms at Waitomo caves. Possibly see Tongariro National Park. Then we will head back to Auckland.
I can't figure out the best order to see these things to avoid backtracking or avoiding bad roads. Any advice? Thank you so much.
