Default Best way to Tauranga/Welcome Bay from Auckland??

Hi all, got an early appointment in Welcome Bay on Tuesday.
Any ideas on the faster route heading south from Auckland - SH2 down the coast or 27, 24 and 29 over the Kaimai Mamaku Forest Park?
Any advice appreciated as I have to be there about 0930 and will soon be off to bed (in true Kiwi fashion!!), thanks LL

I can't believe you have so whole-heartedly taken on the 'JAFA' prejudice after such a short time in NZ. It's very depressing.

WHY?

We went via the 2. stopped in Paroa then through to Katikati and down the coast. Our friends suggested we use the 27 - A good road - when we returned to Auckland.

By the way, that wasn't supposed to be too harsh a comment, but I do find it depressing.

was joking and couldn't think of a short phrase to describe Aucklanders - perhaps "Aucklanders" would have done.......




But if I wasn't joking then that would be more fun I suppose.....???

That's ok, then - but why do you now want to butcher the language with shortened words?!

As far as I am concerned best, shortest, quickest route is SH2 via Ngatea, Paeroa, Waihi, Katikati and in to Tauranga. Depends exactly where in Auckland your leaving from but should only take 2 to 2 1/2 hours max.

Cheers
