Touring New Zealand's North Island by Campervan
Our driver, Bob, was excellent. Among other things, he kept us ahead of the other tour buses - we usually saw empty road ahead of us, and as they arrived en masse at
a place, we left.
Cathy and I had the seat right behind Bob, giving us exellent photo ops throughout the day.
This is State Highway 1 a few k from the north end, where some sealing (paving) of the gravel road is being done. A major reconfiguration of the Cape Reinga carpark and
walking track is also being done - that will cut the walking distance to the lighthouse in half. Up to 1,300 cars arrive at the carpark per day during peak season!
