The destination for today is Hicks Bay and the East Cape, the most easterly point of NZ.
After leaving Tauranga we followed SH2 towards Opotiki.
From Opotiki we took SH35, which follows the Bay of Plenty coastline to Hicks Bay.
From Hicks Bay we went to Te Araroa and from there the East Cape Road to the Lighthouse.
What a wonderful view from the Lighthouse!
We decided to drive here early next morning (06:30) to watch the sunrise.
