New Plymouth was our first stop, nothing eventful other than the drive was beautiful but the weather was kind of crappy. Took us about 3 hours to get to our bach, Rosandra Retreat. The bach was very reasonably price at $150 a night, it’s a self-contained unit with everything we need. The grounds are beautiful, there’s even a tennis court, great for little kids since they have a hut.
– Walked along the beach near city center
– Smart Organics (quite expensive though)
In Hind Sight
– We could easily skip this town.
