Waihora Lagoon along the Western Bays Road is a hidden gem and so worth the effort to go and see it. When you turn in, you go through some farmland and along some fairly rough roads – if your car can handle it keep driving until you reach the carpark. Park and follow the track to the lagoon. Old trees dripping with lichen surround the lagoon, it almost feels as if little talking animals are going to come out and talk to you. ....This place is magical.

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
