New Zealand, land of discovery and adventure

Holidaymakers are always welcomed to New Zealand by the locals and the laid-back, relaxed nature of the county. It's made up of several islands, with North Island and South Island the two main regions. New Zealand is a former British colony, so English is widely spoken and rugby is the passionately supported national sport.

Natural wonders

A relatively low population per square mile means there are vast swathes of beautiful scenery and nature for you to explore. New Zealand's mild climate all year round creates comfortable temperatures for wandering around in the great outdoors. Make sure to leave enough time to get to and from places of interest, as many roads take detours around mountain ranges.

Abel Tasman National Park is a great place to try kayaking or take a ride in a water taxi. At Milford Sound and Doubtful Sound, a pair of scenic fjords, you can experience two of New Zealand's most popular natural points of interest.

Things to do in New Zealand

Auckland is New Zealand's capital, and it's a modern and cosmopolitan city with plenty of attractions. For amazing views of the city, why not take a trip to the top of the Sky Tower? The 328m metre tower is the country's tallest man-made structure.

See marine life while staying inside at Kelly Tarlton's Sea Life Museum. Outside of Auckland, local attractions include the Toitu Otago Settlers Museum in Dunedin and the International Antarctic Centre in Christchurch.

Shopping and souvenirs

Outside of the duty free goodies when taking flights to New Zealand and back again, there are many special items you can pick up. The country's main exports are wool and wine, and you'll find handicrafts and vintages in most towns and cities. Maori necklaces made from bone or ornamental stones are also popular. Make sure to pick up something related to the kiwi, New Zealand's national bird.

Dining

New Zealand has its own cuisine, a mix of British and Mediterranean influences. There's still a strong Maori presence in the country, seen in dishes such as rewena bread made with fermented potatoes and the 'boil-up' of pork and dumplings. Food is traditionally cooked in a hangi wood oven, and the distinctive taste is an experience in itself.

Dinner is the main meal of the day, so splash out on an evening at one of New Zealand's many fine restaurants. Finish with 'hokey pokey ice cream', which is vanilla with small chunks of honeycomb.
