New Zealand Travel Tips & Suggestions

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.
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 …
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.
Roxburgh is a nice town with friendly people. It's very far from the next city Alexandra (40 kms).
Dunedin is a great city, full of atmosphere and interesting corners. Don't miss the Otago Museum and especially the Royal Albatross Center.
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 …
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.
Palmerston North is a beautiful place!
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 …
Queenstown is definitely a party town - there's a lot of fun to be had here so make sure you pop in.
Wellington is wicked. Loved it, you have to go.
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.
Paihia is in the bay of islands and is a warm coastal town. The bay has 144 islands and is beautiful.
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.
