Distance & Duration
Today, journey from one renowned wine region to another, as you make your way from Hawke's Bay to remote Eastland. As you make your way though sun-drenched dairy farmland, consider stopping by Morere Hot Springs for a midway soak. For an extensive detour, consider heading up to Lake Waikaremoana in Urewera National Park. Remote Gisborne - where almost half the population is Maori, is also home to the site where Maori first landed in New Zealand. Gisborne is also a surfing mecca, with some of the best breaks in the country.
