After a relaxing morning at the lodge, head north to the Karangahake Winery Estate in the Karangahake Gorge.
While you are there, you might like to have a stroll along one of the Gorges walkways and then back for lunch at the Karangahake Winery Estate. After lunch drive back down past Katikati and head further south to Mill’s Reef Winery at Bethlehem.
From there you may wish to head over to Tauranga and Mt Maunganui and either stroll along the beach or have a swim or climb up Mt Maunganui which has spectacular 360º views of the Bay of Plenty. Have dinner at one of the many great restaurants at the Mount or along the Strand in Tauranga city centre.
