Visions of the Central North Island (Visions of New Zealand series)

123 pages1 hour


Rumbling below the surface of New Zealand's Central North Island lies a hotbed of fiery fury, formed by a clash between two mighty subterranean forces, and giving rise to colourful thermal parks, bubbling mud pools, and soothing hot springs. The Central North Island has it all: fish for trout in Taupo or Rotorua, float beneath galaxies of glowworms in Waitomo, discover Coromandel's old goldmines, Art Deco architecture and the vineyards of the Hawke's Bay, plus much more. This book, written by New Zealand author Donna Blaber, gives a true insider's account of the Central North Island. Having previously written several guidebooks about New Zealand, Donna is now using her knowledge to guide readers throughout the Central North Island, highlighting some of the best scenery, food and attractions to be found. Each chapter can be read as a stand alone travel article, and explores a different highway touring route, providing great ideas on what to do and see. Donna's years of experience working as a road trip editor for a popular NZ car magazine and as the roving editor of a NZ motorhome mag, teamed with years of independent travel and authorship of several popular New Zealand travel guides makes this book a must-read for anyone planning to travel New Zealand by road. Join Donna on her adventures as she explores the beauty of the Central North Island, meets quirky local characters, and reveals all her favourite places to stay, as well as the best places to eat, both on and off the beaten track.
