Please take time to read our varied selection of New Zealand travel blogs. They are designed to both inform and inspire you to visit this incredible country. When we say that there really is very little to prepare you for your first visit to New Zealand, we mean it! New Zealand, land of the ‘long white cloud’ will quite simply take your breath away.
The team here at What to do in Wellington have all travelled extensively around this beautiful country. More than a third of the countryside is protected as either a nature reserve or national park. From the voluptuous volcanic scenery of the North Island to the Alpine fiord regions of the South, it’s a sightseers delight. Drive just about anywhere and you’ll see what the fuss is about. Not only is the scenery stunning, but with only four million people, the roads are also wonderfully empty.
We are sure you will take home lasting memories. Which is why we have written and compiled such an extensive number of New Zealand travel blogs we think you will find of use whilst planning your holiday.
