Have you ever wondered what the must do things were in New Zealand? Are you planning a holiday there soon or living there and wanting to explore more of your own country? The country is made up of over 600 islands so you will always have new places to see and have spectacular water views from many locations. You will also see some of the most stunning mountain ranges in the world covered with snow and greenery.
We will start off with the main cities Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.
Wellington is the capital of New Zealand, sitting right up north on the Cook Straight. NZ is broken up primarily to the north and south. Wellington emcompasses the most beautiful waterfronts, beaches and harbour, where you can catch the popular Red Wellington Cable Car to the stunning botanical gardens.
Add these to your list and you won’t be disappointed:
The National Museum of New Zealand
Before you go anywhere, go and see, read and hear about the amazing heritage, history and culture of NZ. There is so much that you will never know if you don’t go and it will also give you background to many places that you may travel on the rest of your trip.
With the stunning views from all sides of the mountain overlooking pretty much all of Wellington, you can’t go wrong starting here. The views of the boats in the harbour and chill out with the classic meal of fish and chips.
Lord of the Rings tour
Pretty much everyone must go and see this if you love Lord of the Rings. 150 locations in NZ were used in the making of the film and the hobbit village is just the most magical place.
Visit the waterfront, enjoy the amazing cafes or beaches and you will not be disappointed. You will see people cycling, skating or see one of the cool markets there.
Take the family or loved ones to see the beautiful animals and encounter some of the rare New Zealand wildlife up close.
Have some fun and visit the popular Cuba Street. You will get amazing food, cafes, bars or get to stop and watch some of the very talented street entertainers that line the street.
