Here's what Trippy members had to say about attractions:

"Waitomo Glowworm Caves - I recommend taking the longest possible tour with The Legendary Black Water Rafting Co."  See More

"If you're up for an easy day walk there's the City To Sea Walkway and Mount Victoria walkways both from Oriental Bay through to Island Bay, Island Bay Marine Education Centre-Bait House Aquarium is an awesome, but small, aquarium."  See More

"Agree that the Tongariro National Park Tongariro park + walk is amazing, plus you can explore Taupo and Rupaeho as are the glow worm caves in Rotorua and the wine near Napier."  See More

"If you do end up going all the way to Wellington, you have to go to Te Papa Tongarewa - Museum Of New Zealand."  See More

"Hi, if you want to head east towards ChristchurchAkaroa you will have to head towards Queenstown first, you won't have time for a visit to Queenstown or Milford Sound though."  See More

"I would drive down the south coast by Kaikoura and inland to Lake Tekapo and Lake Pukaki."  See More

"Take the inexpensive Fullers Ferries from the Ferry Terminal in Quay Street to Devonport (15 minutes each way) - a historic seaside village."  See More

"The best hike of all is the Milford Track, but if you can't spare the time do the Heaphy Track, the Abel Tasman Walkway or the Routeburn Track."  See More

"The Coromandel Peninsula is very pretty, but the road is so windy and it goes on and on and on."  See More

"You can also check out our Auckland War Memorial Museum and our Museum Of Transport And Technology (MOTAT)"  See More
