Day 1 of our 42-day road trip around the North Island of New Zealand started off at Rydges Sydney Airport Hotel. We got a morning flight to Wellington, New Zealand where we arrived mid-afternoon. We picked up our hire car from Jucy Rentals and went to The Hop Garden for lunch. Finally, we made our way out of Wellington to Greytown via the Remutaka Pass. We stayed at Greyfriars Motel in a garden room, a lovely spot to be based out of for a few days!

This article is all our own experience. Everything was paid for by us and no part of it was free or subsidised. That said, many of the links in this post are affiliate links, which means that I get a small commission if you click it and make a booking or purchase. I hope that you’ll use these links anytime you need to book a place to stay or activity! These small commissions help me to keep travelling so I can write and film more travel guides for you. I would never recommend anything I don’t or would not personally use!
