After camping at Waihi campsite (didn’t see the freedom site by the station until the morning) we headed back onto the Hauraki trail on a mission to our first warm showers host in NZ.




On route we got our history hats on and visited a derelict gold cleaning factory.

Also spotted this little beauty.

We were greeted by Darren and Jana on the trail between Paeroa and Te Aroha and they guided us to their beautiful home. Darren was a great host and pleasure to get to know.
