Beautiful white and black sand beaches, volcanoes and glaciers, cool, clear lakes and boiling mud pools, temperate rainforests and snow-capped mountains. Discover all this and more in New Zealand.
Comprising of two main islands, New Zealand is a relatively small country but crams plenty into its compact package. Truly diverse – it has beautiful white sand beaches and equally stunning black sand beaches, flowing waterfalls and icy glaciers, cool, clear lakes and boiling mud pools, cosmopolitan cities and charming little townships.
It takes just four short hours flying time to fly directly from Adelaide to Auckland, while flights to other parts of New Zealand from Auckland can be found relatively cheaply. Flights into New Zealand are operated by Air New Zealand, Qantas, Virgin, Jetstar and Emirates.
There are loads of ways to explore this beautiful country once you’re there. An easy country to drive in, one of the most popular methods is self-drive either by car or in a motorhome. A motorhome provides you with the opportunity to stop where you want, when you want. There are plenty of free camping sights, holiday parks and camping grounds in most of the scenic areas around New Zealand. With plenty of space for cars on the ferry between Picton and Wellington, it’s easy getting between the islands with a vehicle. Alternatively, many car hire companies prefer you to drop your vehicle off on one island and pick up a new one on the other. You’ll find self-driving around New Zealand is a great way to enjoy the spectacular sights at your leisure.
While New Zealand doesn’t have a vast rail network, the rail journey’s it does have are nothing short of magnificent. Skate along roaring coastlines; through rolling green pastures and fertile farmlands; across volcanic landscapes; over deep gorges and alongside raging rivers – while you just sit back and soak up the scenery. There are also some great Hop-on Hop-off coach options for independent travel including Kiwi Experience for backpackers and Inter-Coach.
Sit back and let someone else do the driving on a coach tour – this can be a great way to see a lot in a short amount of time while getting to know your fellow travellers. With standards ranging from backpacker options to luxury, there’s an option for everyone. Enjoy a relaxing daytrip or overnight cruise on the serenely beautiful Doubtful or Milford Sounds or, for something a little more active, explore the country on a walking or hiking trip or on one of many picturesque cycling trails throughout the country.
As far as an action-packed adventure or a relaxing, easy-paced holiday go, New Zealand is difficult to top for its accessibility, diversity and beauty – all available within a broad range of holiday budgets.
