New Zealand Regions

A guide to all the action and attractions on offer

To get more information on regional attractions in New Zealand, Download my FREE E-BOOK "A New Zealand Travel Guide.  It will give you much more detail on arrival formalities, transport, accommodation, driving in the country, as well as a detailed guide to the action and attractions in the regions.  All that and a whole lot of other useful stuff you'll need to know.

One of the most frequently asked questions on various travel forums (fora?) is "Can you give me some itinerary sugestions?". The problem with that question is that so much depends on what you are interested in.  If you want beaches, sand and surf you'll take a different track to anyone interested in history, art, food and wine. 

To help you rough out an itinerary I've scribbled down the things that from years of wanderings I think might be useful to you. You'll get a lot more detail in my free E-Book "A New Zealand Travel Guide".

Just About Everything You Ever Needed  To Know To Get The Most From Your NZ Holiday

The (Almost) Complete Guide To NZ is the kind of information you need to make the best of your holiday in New Zealand - recommendations on where to stay, where to eat, what to see. 

Yes, all that.  But more, much more. 

Transport, rest areas, photo opportunities, historical background, special places that few others know about  Ohhhh . . .  heaps and heaps of stuff.

And it's all written by a local - not a visiting "editor" - who has been travelling and writing about the country for 30 years. I can give you hints and tips that only a local could possibly know - ideas that will save you time, money and tears.

This is important:  No one has paid for inclusion in this guide.  There are no ads and I rarely, if ever, accept free rides, accommodation etc. That way I am totally free to recommend whatever or whoever I choose.
