Sounds very interesting. However, I have a retrun flight from Auckland. Making the whole return trip on Saturday - Sunday seems a bit too much of travelling and it's not particularly cheap either. So I looked a bit at the map and the schedule. Looks like just going to National Park / Okahune on Staturday and return from there on Sunday might be a more suitable distance and price. Does anybody have opinions whether that's worth doing or would it mean to miss 80% of the sights? --[[User:Uwe Geuder|Uwe Geuder]] ([[User talk:Uwe Geuder|talk]]) 08:57, 13 December 2014 (AEDT)
