Recommended short break / Rental Car Trip from Auckland

For anyone looking for a perfect spot to visit for a long weekend or a short break, Mt Maunganui / Tauranga would be one of our picks.

With flights to Auckland from New Zealand’s main centres significantly lower than direct flights to Tauranga, we would recommend hiring a rental car from Auckland and enjoying the interesting and scenic drive. Along the way you will pass through the spectacular Karangahake Gorge, as well as the historic gold mining town of Waihi, and Paeroa – the home of New Zealand’s most famous soft drink.

Once in Tauranga the is plenty to enjoy including some of New Zealand’s best beaches, restaurants & cafes, hot pools, shopping, and the not to be missed hike to the top of The Mount.

Tauranga offers a range of accommodation options from camping grounds and cabins through the luxury hotel & apartment rooms.
