New Zealand Lifestyle

With its mountain peaks, miles of coastline, and epic valley landscapes, New Zealand lifestyle is all about getting you outdoors and enjoying the big bad world. The people are friendly, the scenery is beautiful, and there’s a strong support system in place for travellers. Whether you’re chasing after wildlife or soaking up the city life in Queenstown, this is a country you won’t soon forget.

New Zealand’s cities are charming and fun to explore. In Wellington, stop by the Parliament Buildings, the Botanical Gardens, and Old St. Paul – one of the best examples of timber Gothic Revival architecture in the world. Take the cable car and head for the hills to Mount Victoria to see the landscape spread out all around you, with Wellington and its harbour below. Follow the coastline around the Weta Cave, and onwards to Red Rocks and the seal colony. On the south island, Christchurch is called the Garden City for a reason. Take in Christchurch’s green space while pausing to try authentic New Zealand coffee or tea. If you want to head out into the mountains, they lie just beyond the city.

Discover Auckland by getting out there and taking in the volcanic cones, historic buildings, the beach area, and the beautiful waterfront drive. Check out the views from Mount Eden Volcano, or take a stroll across the Harbour Bridge.

Foodies, there’s no better place to get your fix than in Auckland’s wine country. Start your New Zealand lifestyle tour at Sanford’s Seafood Market, specializing in fresh local seafood. Then there’s Sabato Fine Foods, with Italian, Spanish, and local gourmet goods. Head to the historic Puhoi Village for some cheese tasting, and to visit the Puhoi Cheese factory. Honey lovers can also sample native floral honeys at the Honey Centre, which even has honey-based cosmetics and soap. Check out the North Auckland Winery Vineyard to enjoy some local wines. That’s what we call a good day!
