About 3 hours south of Auckland is a place called, “Arapuni”. There is a dam this is all part of the Waikato river and here are some pictures of this place.
There were people in this place that stopped for coffee or ice cream. The woman that sold the coffee was from Germany. She made wonderful coffee and told us that she now lives in the country in the local area and loves where she lives.
Lake Arapuni is part of the Waikato area and is further south than Lake Kiripiro.
