7 days in New Zealand

Jump to last reply

Hello,

I'll be traveling with family to New Zealand and Australia next month, and am finally finding time to make travel plans. Included is my five year old son with special needs who is still not able to walk independently, but is too big to be carried. I figure i will pack a stroller and do the best that we can.

I have sent off inquiries to different travel companies, but want to check to see if it is possible/reasonable to rent a car and travel from Auckland and back in the seven days that we have. We are planning on spending two nights in Auckland, then i found an itinerary that has us going to Coromandel Peninsula (1 night);
Tauranga (1 night);
Hobbiton to Rotorua (2 nights)
Waitomo Caves to Hamilton (1 night)
Hamilton to Auckland (1 night) then fly out to Sydney.

What are your opinions? Is it doable? Is the driving reasonable given that we will have a toddler in the car?

I really appreciate any information. Thanks!
