Ports

Auckland

Virtually surrounded by water, Auckland is known as ‘The City of Sails’ with good reason. Opt to see the city from above with a visit to its Sky Tower, complete with a revolving restaurant! Sail on Auckland’s Waitemata Harbour for a taste of its yachting culture. Or head for the natural beauty of Rotorua. A different world completely, here you will find boiling mud pools, spouting geysers and hot springs. A highlight of New Zealand not to be missed!

Doubtful Bay

Dunedin

The Gaelic word for Edinburgh is Dunedin and, not surprisingly, this one retains a number of close links with the Scottish capital. Not only are many of the street names the same, other reminders include the railroad station, University Clock Tower and Gothic Revival Dominican Priory – all built in similar styles. Sightseeing options include Lanarch Castle, a stroll through the Botanic Gardens, a walk up Baldwin Street – the steepest in the world – and a ride on the vintage train through Taieri Gorge.

Cadbury World, The Octagon, Speights Brewery

Wellington

New Zealand's capital city features brightly painted wooden houses and a red cable car that takes you up to a fine view of the harbor. A must-see is the engaging Te Papa Tongarewa National Museum and Art Gallery, and keep your eyes peeled for the Beehive government offices—the name, of course, is a reference to the architecture.
