|Imagine a unique place
of breathtaking scenery: craggy coastlines, sweeping golden beaches,
rich forests, snow covered mountains, fish filled rivers, glacier
fed lakes and gurgling volcanic pools, all beneath a vibrant blue
sky. That place is New Zealand.
New Zealand is
compact and accessible, spread over three relatively small islands
with efficient and modern transport, quiet roads, plenty of international
flights and 2 stunningly scenic rail journeys. Other pluses
are friendly, English-speaking people, a low crime rate.
There are 3 major cultural influences:
navigators (the Maori),
settlers who followed a thousand years after the Maori’s,
Pacific Rim immigrants.
The animal and plant life are excellent, offering many opportunities
to see the varied birdlife (including kiwis), also dolphins seals
Enjoy the chance to explore2 of the richest New World wine regions
on earth, sample wonderful cuisine, stroll on deserted beaches,
walk through the national parks or over alpine passes.
Try whitewater rafting, caving or bungee jumping. You can snowboard
and ski on world class slopes.
Experience scuba diving in unique colour filled marine reserves,
sail on exciting waters or play on tournament class golf courses.
If that is not your style, immerse yourself in culture at the museums
and galleries of New Zealand’s main cities:
New Zealand’ offers something for every type of visitor and
it’s time as an original tourist destination has come. Long
haul flights are growing fast and the country’s isolation,
once a hurdle, is now a boon.
