      Auckland is the biggest city in New Zealand, home to close to a third of the country’s inhabitants. This is a world-class destination that has so much to explore. The city is built on a live basaltic volcanic field and this means that the landscape varies greatly. Here you will find steaming lakes next to craters, lava caves on recently formed volcanic islands and bubbling mud pools creating colourful mineral deposits. Adrenaline junkies love Auckland for all the leisure activities on offer, including sky jumps, canyoning, kayaking and more. Art galleries, top restaurants, shopping centres and markets add to extensive sightseeing in and around the city.

      Extending from Auckland to the northernmost tip of New Zealand, the Northland region is home to diverse scenery that includes stunning isolated beaches, rolling farmland and rugged landscapes, presenting tourists with an array of activities such as diving, mountain biking, hiking or simply sightseeing. The area is best experienced on the 800km Twin Coast Discovery Highway which takes visitors to the ancient Kauri forests on the west coast, the Bay of Islands and city of Whangerei in the east, and to Cape Reinga, where the Tasman Sea and Pacific Ocean collide.




      The city of Rotorua has been a spa town since the 1800s, thanks to the many geysers, hot springs and mud pools that can be found in what is one of the world’s most active geothermal fields. The Maori, who considered the region sacred, make up 35% of the population and a popular attraction is discovering their rich culture and traditions. Rotorua is surrounded by lakes, mountains, forests and other natural features that afford visitors the opportunity to try out a number of outdoor activities between relaxing sessions in the hot springs and pools.





       Queenstown is situated on the shores of Lake Wakatipu and has stunning views of the surrounding alpine peaks. Considered by many as one of the world’s adventure capitals, it offers visitors a wide selection of adrenaline-boosting activities to choose from, such as bungee jumping, white water rafting, zip lining, skiing and skydiving. Queenstown also has a lively bar and restaurant scene, and for those who prefer the quieter things in life there are vineyards, golf courses, spas and wellness centres.





      Fox Glacier village is in “Glacier Country” on the West Coast of New Zealand’s South Island. Tucked discreetly into the rain forest-clad foothills of the Southern Alps, it has a stunning outlook across the surrounding farms and offers breath-taking views of New Zealand’s two highest peaks, Aoraki/Mt Cook and Mt Tasman. The tiny township was founded from a gold strike which soon petered out, and it now mostly serves as a base for visitors to its massive icy namesake. Compared to its larger, busier neighbour Franz Josef, Fox Glacier exudes a quieter, more intimate atmosphere. But don’t let its sleepy appearance deceive you – there is plenty to thrill even the most enthusiastic adrenalin junkie. Visitors can journey deep into the towering rain forests, explore the blue ice caves of the glaciers, jet-boat up a glacial river, or even skydive! Active adventure, relaxation or family fun all against the backdrop of a spectacular natural landscape, New Zealand’s Fox Glacier offers something for everyone.





       Despite the devastating earthquakes of 2010 and 2011, Christchurch was placed second on The New York Times’ list of 52 ‘Places to Go’ in 2014. This speaks volumes of the spirit of this city and its people, whose collective creativity has seen a number of restorative art projects developed on the empty lots and buildings the disasters left behind. The city also offers a fabulous array of activities, including punting down the Avon River, helicopter tours, hot-air ballooning and whale and dolphin watching. Or stroll around the Botanic Gardens, followed by a visit to Pomeroy’s for a craft beer and adjoining Victoria’s kitchen for a pub-style lunch.

    There aren’t many places on this planet where travellers are so well catered for – in terms of both man-made enticements and splendours of the natural realm. New Zealand is bigger than the UK, with one-fourteenth the population size. Filling in the gaps are sublime forests, majestic mountains, and the stunning lakes, beaches and fiords that have made this country one of the best hiking (locals call it ‘tramping’) destinations on Earth. It’s renowned worldwide for having a relaxed, friendly, spacious and outdoor adventure lifestyle (think sport, walks, BBQs, and beaches). When you combine this adventurous outlook with a stunning backdrop you start to see why travellers rate New Zealand as the action/adventure/adrenalin capital of the world!

    Banking and Currency


    New Zealand’s unit of currency is the dollar (NZ$). All major credit cards can be used in New Zealand, with Visa and MasterCard accepted most widely, followed by American Express and Diners Club.


    New Zealand banks are open from 9.30am to 4.30pm Monday to Friday. Some are also during weekends. .

    Automated Teller Machines (ATM) are widely available at banks, along main shopping streets and in malls.

    International credit cards and ATM cards will work as long as they have a four-digit PIN encoded. Check with your bank before leaving home.

    Travel, Transport and Getting Around

    With so many things to do and spectacular places to see, choosing how you travel around New Zealand is as important as choosing where you want to go. Your choice of transport will depend on how quickly you want to get from A to B. Plane, train, bus, boat, car or caravan – you could even cycle if you’re feeling adventurous. In most cases getting there is all part of the fun so hire a motor home to see the sights at your own pace, or jump on a train for a scenic tour through remote areas often inaccessible by road.

    For travel between New Zealand’s islands, hop on a plane or ferry. Daily flights are available between domestic airports. Several passenger and vehicle ferries offer services between the North, South and other islands.

    Food, Drink and Cuisine Advice

    The cuisine in New Zealand is very seasonal and relies heavily on local produce. As the islands are very agricultural there is a wide variety of fresh foods always available. The influences are largely British although there are Asian influences creeping in and takeaways are becoming more popular.

    New Zealand is an island nation with its waters containing a large variety of fish and seafood. Despite this, until recently shellfish hasn’t played an important part in the diet of New Zealanders. The consumption of fish has traditionally been low as meat has been the main preference for meals. Having said this, fish and seafood has always been significant in the Maori diet and you will notice that the names of many of them are still used today in Maori.

    Climate and Weather

    New Zealand has a largely temperate climate. While the far north has subtropical weather during summer, and inland alpine areas of the South Island can be as cold as – 10°C in winter, most of the country lies close to the coast, which means mild temperatures, moderate rainfall, and abundant sunshine.

    Because New Zealand lies in the Southern Hemisphere, the average temperature decreases as you travel south. The far north of the country has an average temperature of about 15°C, while the deep south has a cooler 9°C average. January and February are the warmest months of the year, and July is the coldest.

    Clothing / Dress Recommendations

    New Zealand is typically an informal place so pack casually for comfort. Famous for having four seasons in one day; our advice if you are traveling even in the summer is to pack a light jacket or pashmina shawl just in case the weather turns cooler or if you’re visiting higher altitudes. You can also expect some rain, so include a light raincoat.

    Smart casual clothes are acceptable at most restaurants and night-spots. New Zealand is renowned for its outdoor activities, so make sure you take swimming gear, hiking shoes, trekking pants/shorts, sunhat and sunglasses, as well as plenty of sunscreen . If you plan to do much walking then lightweight walking shoes or sneakers are fine.

    Electricity and Plug Standards

    New Zealand’s electricity supply runs at 230/240 volts, and we use angled two or three pin plugs (the same as Australia). Most hotels and motels provide 110 volt ac sockets (rated at 20 watts) for electricrazors only.
