The following is a far-from-complete collection of interesting websites with information about New Zealand.

If you have a site - either your own or one you've visited - that you think we should list here, please email me.

Naturally, I like the concept of reciprocity - you scratch my website and I'll scratch yours - but it ain't a big deal. If your site is good value, whether I get a back-link or not ought not get in the way of letting others get the benefit of a link to it. I do, however, reserve the right not to create links if the whim takes me .

For some accommodation options go to our accommodation page.

For a lot of official information and statistics, etc the New Zealand Government Online.

    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.
