The lovely Lake Pukaki photo stop on way from Queenstown to Mt Cook.
We passed through Arrow Junction on our way from Haast to Queenstown. I had to stop and take a picture even in the rainy conditions its still pretty.
When traveling from Wellington to Picton on the Interisland Ferry you watch as the land rises up to welcome you. Leaving the Cook Strait and entering the mostly calm waters of the Queen Charlotte Sounds is well worth taking the boat vs the plane. Such a peaceful way to travel and good fun for photographers.
Delightful location right on the waterside. We were there for Valentines Day brunch and were pleased with the food and the service.
You can visit the Hobbiton Movie Set from The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit film trilogies in a fascinating two-hour guided tour. During your tour you will see Hobbit Holes, The Green Dragon Inn, The Mill, double arched bridge and other structures and gardens built for the films.
We were astounded at the level of detail of the sets and charmed by the Green Dragon Inn. We advise you to book ahead the tour is very popular. There is also a longer tour that includes a feast.
Found this picturesque spot on the way from Waitomo to Matamata. The lake and hydro dam create stunning views. My favorite accidental find of the trip.

Located in the heart of Auckland this vast parkland is a real treat. The roaming animals add a warmth to the land and make you feel far from city life. There are family facilities including BBQ’s and picnic areas.

Beautiful 360 degree views over Auckland from the monument.
In 1885 the New Zealand Government built a military outpost at Kohimarama, or Bastion Point, because of its commanding strategic position overlooking the Waitemata Harbour.
The point is the location of the Memorial for the first Labour Prime Minister of New Zealand Michael Joseph Savage (23 March 1872 – 27 March 1940). He is generally regarded as one of New Zealand’s greatest and most revered Prime Ministers.
