New Zealand Travel Guide

New Zealand is a natural wonderland in the Southern Hemisphere. Its two main islands have long enchanted visitors eager to see the unspoiled wonders, beautiful mountains, high-altitude lakes, and pristine forests. Wellington sits on the Cook Strait, welcoming visitors with a vibrant creative culture plus great food, coffee, and wine. Christchurch is the gateway to many of the iconic filming locations from the Lord of the Rings. Fans will certainly not want to visit Matamata on the North Island with its preserved Hobbiton. Outdoor enthusiasts can revel in the chance to enjoy skiing, bungee jumping, parasailing, glacial hiking, and white water rafting. New Zealand is a giant playground. Come and find your adventure.

A typical tourist stopover point when you are travelling to Lake Pukaki or Lake Tekapo from Queenstown or Wanaka. High Country Salmon are grown in the glacial waters of the Mackenzie Country hydro canals. The constant flow of pristine water makes our salmon firm in flesh, and mild on the palate. Not exactly the cheapest but definitely one of the freshest. Go try the sashimi if you are a raw fish lover. #newzealand #food #sashimi

A must try delicacy in Queenstown which everyone will recommend which is the Fergberger. The secret behind this restaurant is to use hand-make ingredients, tender fresh meat with fresh produce every day. The amount of succulent meat, fresh veg and special sauce in the burger is so wholesome and splendid that every penny spent is well worth it. The shop is located at 42 Shotover Street, Queenstown 9300, New Zealand. #newzealand #queenstown #fergburger #food

Everyone has to try their Onsen hot pool when you are in Queenstown, New Zealand. Their idyllic cedar-lined hot tubs and a unique kiwi twist on a Japanese tradition, their exclusive pools are filled with pure water from the surrounding mountains which is heated to approx. 38.3 degrees to relax your body and soul. We received individual towel plus a complimentary drink and snack (we chose beer and ice cream) to enjoy during our rejuvenating soak. Not to forget the awesome view that will make your experience of the Onsen more wholesome. #newzealand #queenstown #travel #onsen

Experience one of the best town in the world, Queenstown, New Zealand. It sits on the shores of the South Island’s Lake Wakatipu, set against the dramatic Southern Alps. You can do many activities there, such as bungee jumping, jet-boating, skiing, sky diving, luge or explore the beautiful town and restaurants. #newzealand #queenstown

The beautiful Lake Tekapo that requires no filter. Picturesque by day and dazzling by night, Lake Tekapo is part of a UNESCO Dark Sky Reserve, making it the perfect spot for stargazing. #newzealand #laketekapo #unesco

The alpaca farm in New Zealand is amazing. We went to The Paca Shack for a farm tour which is exclusive for just our group. Due to the pandemic, business has really been affected where the owner is using his savings to sustain the farm and keep the animals healthy and strong. Please go support them if you are around Lake Tekapo area or Fairlie town. They have >50 alpacas, some sheeps, and a Lama. 😍 #newzealand #travel #alpacafarm
