New Zealand Travel Guides
Explore New Zealand
Do you remember the well-used Tourism New Zealand slogan "Don’t leave town ‘til you’ve seen the country"? Well, this book gives you all the inspiration you need to do just that. Explore New Zealand is a compilation of the top 101 Must-Do’s for Kiwis as voted by those who know this country the best – New Zealanders. Some of the old favourites are in there, and so are some of the new activities and attractions that weren’t around when the original campaign ran back in 2006.
This 256 page soft-cover book is a great gift for any proud Kiwi, and at 230 by 175mm it's the perfect size to take pride of place on the coffee table or bookshelf.
101 Must-Do's for Kiwis
I Love You New Zealand is both a celebration of the best that New Zealand has to offer and an inspiration to make the most of it. Laid out region by region, this book explores the places and activities that everyone should experience.
This is a soft cover book of 264 pages and is a great size for a bookshelf or a coffee table at 210mm by 210mm.
101 Must-Do Weekends
This book is a series of brief but well-researched suggestions for great weekend escapes throughout our country. With the superb photography complementing the text, you’ll see just what you’re missing out on.
101 Must-Do Weekends is divided into 10 broad themes, each containing up to 15 specific suggestions. However, the beauty of the collection lies in its mix-and-match potential. Therefore, if you have a special interest in art and craft, for example, a weekend in the Nelson region will be very rewarding. But there’s also plenty of scope for other activities covered elsewhere in the book, such as visiting the region’s vineyards or exploring the great outdoors.
This is a soft cover book of 240 pages and is the perfect size for the coffee table at 210mm by 210mm.
Let's Go Camping
Camping is a favourite Kiwi pastime that has lasted through the generations and is still proving popular. Camping was voted the country’s 9th Must-Do in the AA’s first 101 Must-Do’s for Kiwis campaign.
We’ve seen more holiday parks established around the country, creating comfort and an outdoor experience for all ages to enjoy. Your basic 2-person tent, caravan with awning or cabin unit with uninterrupted sea views means you’re spoilt for choice in terms of the type of camping you might like to experience. Whatever you’re after, there’s no question camping is a great way to spend time with the family or to simply chill out over the summer months and take in the many wonders of our natural landscape.
Let’s Go Camping includes 66 great places to pitch your tent or park your van, and the things you can do when you get there. It’s a soft cover book of 228 pages, and is a great size for a bookshelf or coffee table at 210mm by 210mm.
