Holidays in New Zealand

Holidays in New Zealand

While New Zealand is a relatively young country, it has a rich and fascinating history, reflecting both our Maori and European heritage.

Amazing Maori historic sites and taonga (treasures), some dating back almost a thousand years, are a contrast to many beautiful colonial buildings.

A walk around any New Zealand city today shows what a culturally diverse and fascinating country we have become.

PARKS & RESERVESMore than a third of New Zealand’s land area is contained within the boundaries of a park or reserve. These protected places are a chance to leave civilisation behind for a few hours or days.

SCENIC VIEWSThere’s often some exertion required to find a panorama, but the effort is totally worthwhile. In a country with as many mountain ranges and volcanoes as ours, huge views are part of the package.

WALKS & TRAILSOne thing that all travellers want to do in New Zealand is walk – through forests, up mountains, along riverbanks and around lakes. It’s the easiest way to get into the landscape.

NATIONAL PARKS & MARINE RESERVESThere are 14 spectacular national parks and more than 25 marine reserves preserving New Zealand's natural heritage. There's something rare and special about each one of them.
