We drove down to Rotorua today, and stopped off part-way at Hamilton Gardens. It's SO COOL, there's a heap of different types of gardens from times and locations around the world. We also walked through a redwood forest and had a fantastic dinner in Rotorua itself.
Today we went to Piha Beach, which is a black sand beach, and up to Arataki, which has some really nice views.
We also went into Auckland city centre, and man, the amount of construction going on makes Sydney's look like we're doing nothing. Ended up giving up on that and going back.
