New Zealand Travel Tips & Suggestions

I've been kayaking with Golden Bay Kayaks in Abel Tasman and although it was cheaper than the other kayaking companies it was beautiful and exciting. Even though I was beginner at kayaking, I could see a lot of great views within a half day. Awesome place for swimming and remote beaches. Friendly company stuffs. Love …
Palmerston North is a beautiful place!
Turangi is a killer spot for the serious outdoor enthusiast. Tongariro crossing (ranked one of the best day hikes in the world) is just up the road along with tons and tons of fishing opportunities. Just a word of warning, I heard about a lot of cars being broken into here so be mindful of your stuff, especially …
Wellington is wicked. Loved it, you have to go.
Dunedin is a great city, full of atmosphere and interesting corners. Don't miss the Otago Museum and especially the Royal Albatross Center.
I did the day hike at Tongariro National Park. It was absolutely amazing - sooo beautiful! Bring lots of water and food. It's a small town.
Roxburgh is a nice town with friendly people. It's very far from the next city Alexandra (40 kms).
Queenstown is definitely a party town - there's a lot of fun to be had here so make sure you pop in.
Napier is a really cute place to stay for a few days! There is loads to do including the spa (which is so cheap), the aquarium and mini-golf! There also seems to be a lot of dance classes happening - salsa was really fun. Pubs are good, but not really a clubby place! Had a really good time here!
Motueka is a great place. Looks on the map like a small place to pass through on the way to Abel Tasman, but there's a lot to do there and for staying for a while there can't be many better towns in New Zealand. Small but with the facilities and nightlife of a much larger town, extremely friendly and welcoming locals, …
Waitomo is a very small town situated in the country. The main attraction is the glow worms, but there are other things to see and do. Ppart from a few local pubs and restuarants, there is not much happening in the area of nightlife. But if you want to relax in a natural environment this is a great place that is very …
Kaikoura is a beautiful place, the mountains, the sea, the dolphins, the whales - wicked!
We found Oamaru to be a happy, friendly place full of history and we look foward to shifting there in the near future. I hope we can make a positive and creative addition to the community.
Paihia is in the bay of islands and is a warm coastal town. The bay has 144 islands and is beautiful.
I spent 6 weeks working in Glenorchy, and it was the highlight of my 6 month stay in New Zealand. I went jet boating with Dart River Safaris, and that was spectacular. I highly suggest a visit.
Bay of Plenty is a large bay, with more than just over two hundred fifty kilometers of coastline. It is situated on the North Island of New Zealand, between the Coromandel Peninsula and Cape Runaway. This bay is also characterized by the many islands that you can see from the coast. You'll find a lot of sandy beaches …
One of those towns most international travelers have never heard of is Reefton. It's situated on the South Islands highlands, stretching out around a river and enclosed by low mountain ranges. There are plenty of restored old houses making up the town centre and creating an old world atmosphere. It doesn't offer the …
Tongariro National Park, New Zealand's first national park, is home to some of the most spectacular volcanic features in the world, with the three active volcanic peaks, Ruapehu, Ngauruhoe, and Tongariro, being the central features of the park. They can be explored on the famous Tongariro Crossing, New Zealand's most …
Havelock is a small town in the in the Pelorus Ssound of the Marlborough region that is known for green-lipped mussels. It is quaint and small but a nice stop for lunch or coffee on the way between Nelson and Blenheim or Picton. Since Havelock has the largest green-lipped mussel industry in the world, you will find a …
Thames is a traveler's dream when it comes to orientation. There's the sea to the west, foresty mountains to the east and (almost) everything in between is strictly square design! Getting lost -- impossible. The main road leads right through from north to south and pretty much everything of importance is a maximum of …
