Touring New Zealand's North Island by Campervan

Although you can get to Russell by road, it was recommended by several people we met that we avoid the long, rough road and take a shortcut via the ferry at Opua, so we did. The very short, scenic cruise cost $15 for the campervan and driver, $2 for passengers.
