105 37
With so much going on at any time, in any weather, travelling New Zealand is exciting for both locals and international visitors. The country has a varied landscape with beaches, lakes, forests, mountains, plains, small towns and cities - you haven't seen it all until you have truly seen it all.


Marlborough is one of the most beautiful regions in the country. For the outdoor lover, hiking tracks through New Zealand bush and eco-tours in search of native bird and wildlife are a unique adventure while those looking for a place to relax will enjoy the tranquility of the Sounds. The seaside town of Picton is a relaxing place to have lunch by the water and the connoisseur can enjoy a wine tasting tour of some of Blenheim's award winning vineyards.


Rotorua offers visitors the most relaxing holiday in the country. Internationally renowned for its geothermal activity, Rotorua is home to a number of popular day spas and hot pools. Pamper yourself and relax during the day before enjoying an evening out at one of the high quality restaurants in the central city. With its label as the mountain biking capital of the world, Rotorua is a cyclist's dream; it'd be a shame not to hire a bike and ride some of the tracks during your stay.


Just south of Auckland, Hamilton is one of the country's fastest growing centres. Hamilton Gardens is the most popular attraction in Waikato with over 600,000 annual visitors. The collection of themed gardens are a must-visit in the North Island; spend the day and enjoy a lunch at the Turtle Lake Restaurant and Cafe. The city itself is gorgeous and always has something going on; Hamilton is home to a number of music festivals, art galleries as well as excitement for the whole family at Hamilton Zoo and Museum.


New Zealand's adventure capital, Queenstown, should be you number one destination in the South Island. The lakeside town offers thrills from bungee jumping, sky diving and jet boating to winter sports on Coronet Peak and The Remarkables during the country's ski season. If you're seeking thrills you'll find them in Queenstown.


Hanmer offers the perfect weekend away in the South Island. Just an hour and a half from Christchurch, the town boasts a thermal pool retreat complete with private spas and relaxation packages with mud treatments, spa therapies and massages. Tracks and trails through the nearby Hanmer Heritage Forest offer a serene way to immerse yourself in some of the country's iconic native bush.
