Where I stayed
After that I went on a simulator ride which took me through some of the scenery in New Zealand I've missed and then I went on to Waimangu Valley which is another geo-thermal area. In the 19th century this area had what was classed as (one of the many) 8th wonder of the world - pink and white volcanic terraces. These were completely destroyed by a huge volcano in 1886 and only a lake remains.
I then headed east to Whakatane on the east coast for the night.
