Tongariro National Park had dual heritage status, not just for the natural stuff but also because of the huge cultural significance of this area. There are historical sites dotted around the place such as Te Porere; there is a lot of information to be found about the local legends at visitors centres. Immerse yourself

Toilet facilities everywhere. With a few exceptions it was nice to find (usually) clean facilities along the road. Some even have showers and provide towels -these cost a few dollars, the one in Taupo is well worth it!
