I want to rent a car for one way from Picton to Dunedin or Queenstown. Anyone know what is best way to do that or is that even feasible?
I am 65 and will be holidaying with my wife in a campervan over Christmas. Can anybody suggest a great place to camp in the Wellington region, to enjoy the New Zealand festives, possibly on a beach but we are equally open to other sugestions?
We move on to South Island on 28 Dec and would appreciate a similar suggestion for New Year?
Hi, me and my partner will be in NZ for about 3 days.
We are in Wellington before then and would like to get any suggestions on how far we can go from Wellington that's worth to see, coming back to Melbourne (from Wellington) 3 days later.
We know it's not much time, but would like to make the best out of our little time.
We are going to NZ with a few friends. We are going over the Easter break, so will only have 4 or 5 days. Of course we don't expect to see everything, but we live in Sydney so am sure will go again in the future. Point of this trip is to have a nice break with friends.
The group: all adults, 30-41 yo. 2 couples, maybe another two single guys. Interests: wine tasting, good food, scenery, national parks, a bit of bushwalking (beginner level), possibly kayaking (beginner level)
Accomodation: mid-range, comfortable, eg on a winery, absolutely no camping!! (says one of our friends)
Areas need to be gay friendly (I'm sure thats all fine in NZ)
Ideally, we'd find a region that has wineries and some outdoor activities (national parks, bushwalking, lakes you can rent kayaks on)?....
I've been looking at various regions including around Wellington
Possible places of interest: The classic wine tour from Napier to Blenheim, Martinborough wine region (and also Marlborough wine region) but I am particulrly interested in the Martinborough pinot noir. Any thoughts on this classi wine tour? is it overhyped? touristy? any alternative ideas?
If we base ourselves in this region, are there places we can bushwalk/ kayak close by?
Thanks very much!
just arrived in wellington; plan to stay for three or four days...i'd like to see as much of north island as possible in about ten days/two weeks. i've been told to go up to napier...to taupo (instead of staying in rotorua) to the coromandel peninsular...bay of islands, paiheia...does this sound feasible? i'm also wondering if i can get up to the northwest tip of north island easily?
any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated...i've been taking intercity and newman's buses and they are terrific...don't have a car and apparently don't need one!
traveling on south island has been tremendously easy and comfortable...look forward to seeing as much of north island as possible!
thanks again for help.
I'll be in Wellington on a first-time business/leisure trip next week. I have Mon, Tue, Wed nights off and all Thursday. Some of it is already locked into definite plans (Te Papa, Cable Car, Botanic Gardens, Film Festival Movies) but I'm quite flexible and open to other suggestions, if someone cares to join me...
