Looking for peoples opinions on there experiences of stuff you have done while in NZ.
Were adventurous, sporty and willing to try most things once.
Obviously we know about skydiving, bungee, swings, jet boating, whale watching etc... so were looking to see some of the not so advertised activites to do.
What are your favourate places you went to?
Were going for 6 weeks and travelling both islands, mostly by camper.
Leaving mid dec until early feb... so were going to be there for xmas and new year.
Most likely flying into the south of the south island, so suggestions for Xmas and NYE in that regien?
I liked all the little towns. NZ has so many of them. And the big ones too.
I saw a farm show not far south of Auckland.
Rotorua volcanic park, though the smell drifts so maybe not the best area to stay overnight.
Wellington and Queenstown cable car.
The ferry between islands.
Franz Josef glaciers
Airforce museum in Christchurch, if still OK.
I've been 3 times and had good weather that time of year and I've had rain so expect anything.
Not a lot in Invercargill, museum of the South, I think.
About 30 miles south is a sign post pointing everywhere, with distances.
I'll add in my 2 pennies:
Whale watching - Kaikoura
Abel Tasman National Park
Queenstown (various attractions)
Hells Gate Rotorua
Franz Josef/Mount Cook glacier
Have a great time
