Auckland, New Zealand
Many people road trip New Zealand as well. Rent a car from the airport or if you’re staying in the city first you can rent it from the city on your way out of town.
It’s also possible to get around by bus. Check out my guide to transportation around New Zealand for more details.
Take 2 days for the city but make sure to leave some extra time for some great day trips.
It’s easy to get anywhere from here and might end up being both your starting and end points. Nothing is ever too far away but on the North Island head over to Rotorua, Coromandel Peninsula, or Hobbiton.
