Holidays to New Zealand


The two large islands that make up New Zealand are sparsely populated with only four million people, making it one of the world’s most relaxing places to visit. Holidays to New Zealand will provide travellers with all the relaxation and peace one could want. Holidays in New Zealand can also provide sightseers with ample choices for adventure.

The North Island of New Zealand makes for a perfect nature holiday. The North Island is home to Auckland, Wellington, Rotoura, Taupo and Hamilton, amongst many other quaint towns. It is also home to Ruapehu/Tongariro National Park. Much of the Northland’s coastline remains untouched, making for the perfect aquatic holidays in New Zealand.

The towns of Opua and Whangarei are local havens for both residential and international yacht lovers while Russell and Tutukaka are where some of the best game fishing in the country can be enjoyed. For beach-goers, Doubtless Bay will ensure miles of unspoilt sand, surf and sea.

The North Island is exploding with entertainment, shopping, dining, Maori culture and rich history. It is believed that during the 11th century, the first Polynesian voyagers arrived here.

The larger of the two islands is the South Island where the city of Christchurch rests. On the South Island visitors will also discover Queenstown, Dunedin, Wanaka and Central Otage. This island also hosts Mount Cook, Steward Island, Lake Tekapo, Hanmer Springs, Te Anau and Milford Sound as well as the Oamaru/Waitaki Valley.

The Central Otago part of the South Island is quite dry, while the Southlands are green and lush. It is where tranquil waterways provide some of the best fly-fishing in the area. The South Island is also a mecca for hikers who seek pristine rainforests and wildlife encounters. Holidays in New Zealand should include the amazing Catlins Coast where visitors have a chance to see Curio Bay, the subtropical Petrified Forest that dates back to the Jurassic age.

Invercargill is the largest urban centre in Southland and attracts tourists who come to admire its elegant Edwardian and Victorian buildings. About 30 minutes south from here, holidaymakers will discover the Bluff fishing port, which is where the famous Bluff oyster derives, as well as the annual seafood festival.

Weather

The best time to visit New Zealand is any time that suits you, as there simply is no bad time to visit this beautiful and exciting country. The year-round oceanic climate provides constantly pleasant temperatures, which means that there is not a large variation from summer to winter. The warmest months are from September to April with the summer months of December, January and February being the three hottest of them all.

Currency

The New Zealand Dollar (NZ$) is the currency you will need for your holidays to New Zealand. The country’s coins come in values of 10, 20 and 50 cent pieces as well at $1 and $2 and bank notes come in denominations of $5, $20, $50 and $100. Money can be exchanged at airports, local banks, currency exchanges and hotels.
