New Zealand

If you’re visiting New Zealand from overseas, you will most likely be travelling on to explore the country further. Here’s a little taster of what you might encounter. Thanks to Sandy Abbot for the use of his photos, also thanks to NZ tourism and Virtual New Zealand.

North Island

You’ll most likely arrive and leave New Zealand from Auckland so it’s the perfect stepping off point to explore the rest of the North Island. The North Island boasts stunning beaches in the far North and Coromandel peninsular, beautiful rolling farmland, accessible mountain walks and skiing, great wineries, thermal attractions, glow worms, trout fishing, the ‘Worlds coolest little Capital’… and you haven’t even reached the South Island yet!…

South Island

The South Island gets all the attention when it comes to New Zealand’s stunning scenery, so if you’ve just been through the North Island, it only gets better. Starting with our world famous ‘Savs’ in Marlborough, then you can walk or kayak the stunning Abel Tasman National Park, or swim with seals or dolphins in Kaikoura, go whale watching….no doubt you’ve done your research so you already know what to expect. Here are some more photos courtesy of Sandy Abbot and NZ Tourism.

Just a note; there are 4 million+ people living in New Zealand, you just won’t see many in the photos though, we’re quite shy.
