Tauranga

After Rotorua, we drove to Tauranga for 1 night. I have been there once, not very impressed but Rick hadn’t so insisted laying his footsteps on this tiny little town. It really is a small town, nothing much to see apart from a nice beach.

On our way back to Auckland, we had a brief stopped at Paeroa . A town where the famous (NZ famous only I think) L&P (Lemon & Paeroa) carbonated drink was originated.

Also a quick peek at the gold mine (still active I think) in Waihi

And this concludes our 2-day road trip.

Yeah, even the mine looks gold-ish in colour. LOL

Nice pictures. The last picture reminds me of Colliseum.

Petite Lass:
Thanks. Now that you mentioned it, it does resemble Coliseum in a way.
