The Big Bridge
The north of the south and lots of the north
This itinerary is a great chance to get a taste of the south island and see
the beauty of the north, see the twinkling glow worms of Waitomo Caves, and
investigate the geothermal attractions of Rotorua and Taupo. Napier, Hastings and
Martinborough are wine growing regions to enjoy on the way to Wellington. Drive through
the amazing Nelson Lakes district, before you encounter the wild scenery of the West Coast.
