Things to do in New Zealand

Don't let it's small size fool you, New Zealand is a country that offers travellers endless possibilities. Breathtaking landscapes, heart-pumping adventures, eye-popping views and mouthwatering cuisine - a holiday in New Zealand can encompas it all and then some. While rugged images of soaring peaks and expansive fields made famous in Lord of the Rings may first come to mind, there's no need to live like a hobit while you're here. With tourism a popular industry and cosmopolitan cities scattered throughout, New Zealand accommodation is easily found, ranging from luxury hotels through to cheep and cheerful B&Bs. 

Most travellers begin their New Zealand adventure in Auckland, the country's largest city. This harbour city is a multicultural melting pot, a place where art and creativity thrives and million dollar views accompany world class restaurants. While here, shop the city's concept boutiques, seek out the latest hotspot bar and confront your fear of heights at the Auckland Sky Tower. You can even bungy jump off it if you're feeling brave.

If a sky high jump sounds like your idea of fun then you're going to love Queenstown, New Zealand's adventure capital. Adrenaline junkies can bungy jump off bridges, ski down steep terrain, wiz around fjords on a jet boat and raft down river rapids. If moving at a glacial pace is more your forte, Queenstown's majestic scenery will have you captivated for hours. Cruise the remarkable Milford Sound or take a ride on a Gondola and admire serene views. For a more comprehensive look at the country's rugged and remote countryside, consider a New Zealand tour.

For a true taste of New Zealand lifestyle, a holiday in Wellington is an ideal option. The country's capital offers a wealth of history, a lively culture and breathtaking views of the surrounding hinterland. Though quieter than Auckland and less touristy than Queenstown, Wellington offers cosmopolitan living amongst a uniquely New Zealand setting.
