The North Island region

The North Island features a wide variety of changes of scene, weather patterns and vista.

The captical city Wellington is the place we call home and is described below. The South Island is just across the water, and a common destination for overseas visitors, it is also described below.

An hour over the scenic Rimutaka ranges to the east are the rural plains of the Wairarapa featuring fascinating day trips to undertake walks, mountain hikes, rugged coastal rambles and scenery as well as the more relaxed pursuits of vineyard touring.

On the western side on the main highway north, are expansive beaches and a laid-back suburban lifestyle.

The middle of the island contains the volcanic plateau with wild scenery, still-active volcanoes (used for parts of the Lord of the Rings film locations) and Lake Taupo. In summer aquatic pursuits, hiking or trout fishing are popular and winter brings out the skiers.

On the west coast are the Waitomo glowworm caves and Mt Egmont / Taranaki volcano. On the east is the port town of Napier in the Hawkes Bay which is well known for horticulture of all kinds including specialties of vineyards and stone fruit.

Further North of the volcanic plateau you get to geothermal areas including power stations, natural hotpools, and, of course, the aquatic and thermal area of Rotorua. Rotorua is geared for visitors with trips or activities that take in its unique character. The Tangata Whenua (local Maori who have deep links with the land through their ancestral heritage) have a rich history and are active in the tourist industry in a way that provides special additional character to many of Rotorua's experiences.

Further northeast are the holiday areas of the Bay of Plenty and Coromandal featuring beaches and ocean activities such as fishing and tours.

Due north, Auckland is the commercial hub of New Zealand based around two natural harbors and an active boating / yachting community.

As you go further North the weather becomes increasingly warm and winter-less with sub-tropical rainforest and holiday destination such as the Bay of Islands for deep sea fishing, and exposure to some of New Zealand's early history.


Just a three hour ferry trip from Wellington, the South Island is regarded as a scenic and wilderness destination that is well suited to catering for tourists.

Tourist destinations include

* the Nelson area in the northwest

* the West coast (mining, forestry, Glaciers and scenery)

* Christchurch on the east - still a thriving and intriguing urban environment bouncing back after a serious earthquake in February 2011.

* Queenstown - a place of stunning scenery and center to much of the tourism and winter activity. Adventure tourism is a highlight for many.

Any New Zealand National Park is worth a visit for those interested in wilderness places. Each boasts a unique character and free information and activities. Some also have commercial activities (such as skiing in the Tongariro National Park in the North Island; or the Milford Track Great Walk in the Fiordland World Heritage Park in the South).


Wellington is a compact city that is centred around a wonderful natural harbour. It has a mild climate - it rarely has snow, and rarely suffers from droughts. The temperatures are usually in the 0-12 degree Celsius range in winter, and 12-25 degree range in summer.

There is always something to do - it boasts a vibrant cafe culture with over 300 bars and restaurants, and the central Wellington city has activity late into the night. Buses travel from the Courtney Place entertainment district, through the central city and around the harbour to York Bay.

Tourist attractions range from visits to the National Museum (Te Papa); rides on the Cable-Car; walking the historic sections of town; visits to the Zealandia sanctuary for rare New Zealand Native species (night tours hear and often see kiwi.); strolling the wharves or booking the sightseeing bus.

Activities include kayak hires on the harbour, walking and shopping, hiking, mountain biking, golf or strolling the wilder coastal areas.

As locals we are happy to discuss a variety of activities depending on your interests. We think much of Wellington's charm is the absolute variety from wilderness to urban.
