When driving to the Central North, the route through the King Country (Te Awamutu, Te Kuiti, and Taumaranui) is a nice alternative to SH1. Nice scenery.

If you walk the Tongariro Crossing then it's a really early start (a longer drive than you think) from Taupo. Consider staying closer to the start of the track.
