New Zealand Activities 

Things to do for visitors and locals available in New Zealand are as diverse as anyone could wish for. Activities from four-wheeling through the remote wilderness to scuba diving in colorful marine reserves can be had virtually everywhere in the country.


You can go rafting through white water today and go on a safari hiking tomorrow. Whether by land or sea, adventure is guaranteed.

For adrenaline junkies, bungee jumping and parasailing are some of the activities New Zealand has to offer. For those who are into more sedate and safe activities, the City of Sails offers plenty of activities from trekking to sightseeing.


Byron Hotel’s The Spencer on Byron Hotel is a Mecca for all sorts of activities in Auckland. At Kelly Tarlton’s Antarctic Encounter & Underwater World, you can acquaint yourself with a wide variety of fish species such as stingrays, sharks, and even penguins. If you’re not afraid of heights, joining the Auckland Bridge Climb is considered a kind of right of passage for visitors who are into more adventurous activities.


The Waiheke Island ferry ride takes only half an hour and the bonus here is you can partake of wine tasting at one of several vineyards in the area and enjoy a quiet, leisurely lunch. You can also visit the Auckland Zoo which boasts a spectacular display of both native and rare birds and animals.


For sports enthusiasts, there is no better place to indulge this fancy in than in New Zealand.


Auckland, for one, boasts of 23 golfing ranges to play in, not to mention the ASB Tennis Center found in the downtown district of the city.
For those who are into water sports, Auckland beaches are ideal for windsurfers, surfers, and kayakers.


The waters in New Zealand are so clean and clear, it looks as though you’re standing or floating on glass

The Rainbow’s End theme park is a great place to bring the kids. A very popular ride here is the double-loop roller coaster, a winner among teenagers. Snowplanet, an indoor snow resort is world-class caliber and a great place to “chill”.

An entire day is enough to enjoy a trip to Waipu and explore its quaint little Scottish town, magnificent caves, and white sandy beaches.


Maungaturoto, an authentic New Zealand town in Matakohe is a great place to experience what a real New Zealand city is like. Kauri Coast’s Kaipara district also has quaint little settlements to visit.


You can also climb Toka Toka Peak for spectacular views. For a relaxing beach experience, go to Whangarei which is just a few miles from Auckland.

In New Zealand, with careful planning, you can fill your stay with visits to wildlife gardens, waterfalls, stables, heritage sites, museums, art studios, and wineries.
