    Under 500km = approximately 5 hours
    You have no secrets on the internet.
    Be careful and vigilant. The internet should be considered like roads, avoiding an incident is better than trying to survive one.

    I do this drive often. Allow about 5 and a half hours, as from Te Kuiti onwards the road is fairly tortuous. If you are coming latish in the afternoon stop at Tekuiti for something to eat as the cafes at Mokau close about 7pm. I would say, only if you know the Waikato, to avoid traffic at Hamilton and Te Awamutu; turn off at Ngaruawahia and take the alternative route to Otorahanga.

    Depends entirely on which roads are open

    Easy driving is 4 1/2 hours. Unless you hit the Auckland speed humps they call peak traffic then it would be more like 6 1/2 hrs.

    Another good map service is zoomin.co.nz - not to sure how good it is from town to town, but with towns its pretty good. Very clean and simple
