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.

Hauhangatahi is one of the oldest volcanoes in the area and has been deemed a wilderness zone with in the Tongariro National Park. It’s an awesome walk with great views over the nation park from a different angle. If you are driving to Ohakune from national Park Village turn left at Erua, park your car, walk across the railway tracks, turn right and follow the tracks for 3 power poles, you will see a small wooden sign on the left hand side that says “track”. Follow this, it’s about an hour through the bush marked with tape, then follow the wooden stakes up to the top for another two hours to the top. Have a goody!
