New Zealand Travel Tips & Suggestions

Dunedin is a great city, full of atmosphere and interesting corners. Don't miss the Otago Museum and especially the Royal Albatross Center.
Palmerston North is a beautiful place!
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!
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.
Paihia is in the bay of islands and is a warm coastal town. The bay has 144 islands and is beautiful.
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 …
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 …
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 …
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 …
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.
Really loved the place. Agrodome, Pig and Whistle Pub, and Hells Gate are all musts while in Rotorua.
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.
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.
Queenstown is definitely a party town - there's a lot of fun to be had here so make sure you pop in.
Kaikoura is a beautiful place, the mountains, the sea, the dolphins, the whales - wicked!
