More about New Zealand

For a country that’s only 18% bigger than the state of Victoria and has a population less than the city of Melbourne, it packs a whole lot of amazing experiences into a small space. Plus, an exchange rate in favour of the Australian dollar is nice bonus. Split into two main islands, the North Island is where you'll find the capital of Wellington and the country's largest city of Auckland. It also has proud Maori heritage and rich cultural experiences. On the South Island, also officially named Te Waipounamu, the natural wonders shine brightly. Explore stunning Abel Tasman National Park, the great Southern Alps and beautiful Milford Sound.
This hassle-free New Zealand trip includes two great cities on the North Island - Auckland and Wellington. Fly from Australia into Auckland. Then after your 4-night stay, travel by train to Wellington. Spend 3 nights in the capital and fly home from Wellington Airport. In both destinations you can enjoy the central accommodation in 4-star apartment hotels, so it's a neat little package that offers great value!
