Touring New Zealand's North Island by Campervan
Today we let someone else do the driving, and that decision gave us a much better experience than we could have gotten on our own. The tour, with Paradise Connexion, was to Cape Reinga, the furthest-north point of land that's accessible by road.
The minibus picked us up a few feet from our campervan site, and only cost $62 pp, far less than some similar tours we'd been looking at.
Along the way we had a drive up 90 Mile Beach and got a fairly close look at the first day of the $250,000
Snapper Classic. This is the adrenalin sport of fishing, and we drove by almost 1,000 people on the beach.
The heaviest snapper this year weighed 9.315 kg.
