Your Destination:

New Zealand - Aotearoa

New Zealand's diverse and dramatic landscape draws many visitors to our shores. From fiords to rainforests, ocean beaches to volcanic cones, the relatively untouched landscape is breath taking, but what makes the visit so special for many is the people they meet. Maori people believe in the concept of 'Manaakitanga' this loosely translates as hospitality - a concept that New Zealanders, fondly known as 'Kiwis', have embraced as part of the New Zealand experience. Kiwis are a friendly bunch and the care, engagement and hospitality we show our guests is based on pride and a genuine belief that this country offers something of everything.

New Zealand is regularly rated as one of the world's preferred destinations not just because of its dramatic scenery, wide open spaces, extreme adventure, clean air, enticing food and wine, creativity and flair but also because of the 'can do' attitude. We look forward to welcoming you to our shores in 2014. Visit


With an irresistible combination of magnificent natural scenery and a vibrant city lifestyle, Auckland is a place of exciting contrasts and endless adventures.

Auckland's sparkling waters, varied landscapes and cosmopolitan city life combine to make it one of the most desirable places in the world to live or visit. It is rated third on the Mercer scale of global lifestyle cities and is consistently ranked in the top 10 on other international liveability lists.

A stunning natural playground, world-class shopping, fine food and wine, spectacular arts and events, and plenty of adventure - you'll find it all here. New Zealand's largest city, Auckland is home to some 1.5 million people and is also the largest Polynesian city in the world, with a rich mix of cultures from around the world.

Auckland is not just a great city, but a whole region waiting to be explored. One minute you could be picking up designer fashion or dining at a waterfront restaurant and within 40 minutes from the city centre, you could be on an island in the Hauraki Gulf, walking through pristine native forest, sampling fine wines at a boutique vineyard, or exploring the wild west coast beaches.
