New Zealand Travel Tips & Suggestions

Wellington is wicked. Loved it, you have to go.
We were lucky and had great weather the whole time we were in Te Anau and Milford Sound. We were able to see the mountains, and it was something very special to be in the Tasman Sea looking back at the west coast of New Zealand. If you can stay overnight in Milford Sound, do it. I felt like we didn't have enough time …
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 …
Paihia is in the bay of islands and is a warm coastal town. The bay has 144 islands and is beautiful.
Taupos a very cool place - I would definitely recommend at least 3 days there. It has lots of free walks and stuff to do.
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 …
I was really dissapointed by Raglan. The town is REALLY small and the beach was nice, but not all the trouble that my friends and I put into getting there.
Whangarei is a lot bigger than what we thought it would be. It has a cute city centre, and alot of surrounding suburban areas. It also has a small waterfront area. It is midway between Auckland and the Bay of Islands and a good place to lodge while exploring the surrounding areas.
I love Hastings so much, I stayed and worked there with my son, Kevin, in 2006 and 2007 and it was a great experience to work in the orchard farms, including a month working in a blueberry pack house. We made lots of friends from all over the world and learned some of their languages too. I really hope that one day I …
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 …
Hokitika is a lovely place for a night or two, and probably one of the nicest towns in the country.
Roxburgh is a nice town with friendly people. It's very far from the next city Alexandra (40 kms).
Methven is a small but beautiful country and ski town. It is situated between beautiful mountains and green fields. The overall atmosphere is friendly (although we didn't see many people). It is not a busy town with nightlife and lots of bars. It has a country feel to it, so if you want to get away from busy and big …
I love the place! It has a real New Zealand feel to it. With the river right in the middle of town and the harbour not far, there's plenty of free sightseeing to be had. All the basics are there like cinema, supermarkets, choice of restaurants, and bars. The Monteith's Brewery tour is well worth it, there's plenty of …
Dunedin is a great city, full of atmosphere and interesting corners. Don't miss the Otago Museum and especially the Royal Albatross Center.
