Heading due north from Auckland on highway one you will hit, after about an hour and a half, the roadside village of Kaiwaka. It is a great pitstop boasting public toilets, a playground, several eateries and a cheese shop with imported and local cheeses. We usually stop here en route to Northland to see the folks.. but this time, for the first time we stopped for coffee and chose this crazy arsed place - it will become a regular going forwards! Enter the wonderland...
