Scenic Highlights

New Zealand’s green and friendly isles, situated in the vast South Pacific Ocean, are ranked among the world’s most popular holiday destinations.

This was one of the last countries to be discovered in the colonial era and has often been dubbed ‘God’s Own Country’ and ‘The Last Paradise.’ Our small country is crammed with a whole continent’s worth of diverse scenery within its maritime borders. It’s like the whole world in miniature – a microcosm of all the most impressive geographical features on earth.

The South Island is here for you to enjoy; dramatic alpine scenery, wilderness areas, glacial lakes, peaceful fiords, grinding glaciers, roaring rivers and gold rush relics. You’ll love the North Island if you are seeking pleasant, easy-on-the-eye scenery – gentle rolling pastures, stunning off-shore islands and beaches, thermal resorts and Maori culture. If you really want to go bush, then Stewart Island is a remnant of ancient Gondwanaland – an untamed and rugged wilderness.

New Zealand’s scenic attractions are easily accessible by public transport. Guided coach tours are available and take in most of the major sights within a 21-day itinerary. If you choose to travel independently, it can be difficult to decide which are the ‘must see’ scenic highlights. The New Zealand Information Network has compiled this list as a general guide for visitors who want to see the most memorable, unique and outstanding scenic attractions the country has to offer.

With so much to see and do you’ll never be bored in New Zealand. Outdoor lifestyles and adrenaline pumping adventures can be experienced all year round. The sunniest period is December to April but temperatures are relatively mild even in winter. New Zealand is just a cool, awesome and exciting place to be. Don’t let us have all the fun, come and join in – you’ll be glad you did.

Danny de Hek
Like most people, I have many passions, goals and dreams. As a self made business professional, my focus is helping my clients, associates and friends, build, strengthen and maintain their success. It would be fair to say I am in the full time business of building relationships and feel my purpose and skill is connecting the right people with the right people.My professional work tends to dominate my personal life, to the horror of my partner and business mentor. They both fully support me yet give me the hard truths when I need to hear this. I am always investing in my personal development to have a fulfilled work/life balance. I enjoy Target Shooting, Hiking & Mountain Biking to clear the brain and to take the guilt away when indulging at a quirky cafe for a cooked breakfast or brunch.My passion for travelling has seen me experience the world on many occasions, my next adventure will be doing the Tibet Rail Journey on the Qinghai-Tibet Railway from Lhasa to Golmud as long as they have Wi-Fi aboard ;-) I have many goals I still wish to achieve but am pretty chuffed that I have accomplished so many of these already.
