New Zealand Travel Tips & Suggestions

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 …
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.
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 …
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 …
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 …
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.
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!
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 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.
Queenstown is definitely a party town - there's a lot of fun to be had here so make sure you pop in.
Dunedin is a great city, full of atmosphere and interesting corners. Don't miss the Otago Museum and especially the Royal Albatross Center.
Kaikoura is a beautiful place, the mountains, the sea, the dolphins, the whales - wicked!
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 …
Roxburgh is a nice town with friendly people. It's very far from the next city Alexandra (40 kms).
Really loved the place. Agrodome, Pig and Whistle Pub, and Hells Gate are all musts while in Rotorua.
