Sun and fun aplenty, all year round, is the main feature of the beautiful Bay of Plenty. You will never be lost for things to do here.
It would be hard to imagine a more shopper-friendly city than Wellington. The capital has a huge variety of stores, conveniently situated in shopping arcades, underground malls and clusters of shops along the ‘Golden Mile’ of Lambton Quay, Willis Street.
Wellington is strategically sited close to the geographic centre of New Zealand and is the vital hub in our network of air, road, rail and sea links. Wellington International Airport is served by Air New Zealand, Qantas, Air Pacific and Polynesian Airlines with regular flights to/from Australia and the Pacific Islands.
The capital city vies with Auckland as the queen of New Zealand’s nightlife and clubbing scene. Wellington has been dubbed the 'Cafe Capital' as the 400 restaurants and cafes give it the highest per capita concentration of eateries in the country.
Wellingtonians claim with obvious pride that their city is the political, geographic, entertainment and gastronomic centre of New Zealand. Arch rival Auckland has grown numerically into a sprawling metropolis with a strong Polynesian and Asian influence.
