New Zealand’s main cities offer a vibrant and eclectic mix of nightlife and activities. Lively entertainment precincts such as Auckland’s Viaduct Harbour and Britomart and Wellington’s Courtenay Place offer a variety of music scenes and live entertainment so there’s something to suit everyone from pub-goers and night clubbers to those seeking to unwind at day’s end with a quiet drink in a cosy bar. Try your luck at one of New Zealand’s casinos where you’ll also find live music, dancing, dining and bars, or visit a theatre or comedy club.

Summertime comes alive with music festivals and gigs taking place throughout the country in quintessential Kiwi holiday spots. Concerts are often held in the unique settings of natural bush amphitheatres, beaches and farmland and they feature popular Kiwi entertainers as well as international acts. Food and wine festivals also draw large crowds for a celebration of local cuisine and New Zealand-produced wine.

Sport is an integral part of the New Zealand psyche. From motor racing to rugby, get caught up with the hype and passion at a variety of sporting events and international games held throughout the year. Racedays at Ellerslie Racecourse are a favourite not just for punters but also for the chance to get dressed in your best. Dress-ups of a more creative variety can be seen in the crowd at the popular International Rugby Sevens tournament held in Wellington in February.

With a busy calendar of events and shows throughout the country to choose from, you’re sure to find activities to keep everyone entertained.
