From Auckland it's easy to explore New Zealand's North Island. Head north to the Bay of Islands, or further east to explore Cathedral Cove in the Coromandel. South of Auckland you'll find the smelly town of Rotorua, famous for its geothermal activity, bubbling mud and geysers. Stunning Lake Taupo is also on the cards as you head further south, eventually ending up in the quaint city of Wellington overlooking the sparkling blue water.
