New Zealand Travel Tips & Suggestions

Roxburgh is a nice town with friendly people. It's very far from the next city Alexandra (40 kms).
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.
Wellington is wicked. Loved it, you have to go.
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.
Katikati is in the centre of no where and is at least 30 minutes away from anywhere else. Its main street has about 15 shops all of which have nothing interesting in them. Due to New Zealand's under population situation, the place is a ghost town except on Saturdays when all the overly happy people come out to annoy …
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!
Paihia is in the bay of islands and is a warm coastal town. The bay has 144 islands and is beautiful.
One of the most interesting tours I've done on my world trip was Murray Baker's volcano tour of Auckland (www.geotours.co.nz). Price is around €40-45. Also useful if you're going on to Hawaii afterwards.
Hokitika is a lovely place for a night or two, and probably one of the nicest towns in the country.
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 …
Palmerston North is a beautiful place!
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 …
Taupos a very cool place - I would definitely recommend at least 3 days there. It has lots of free walks and stuff to do.
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 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.
