- When it comes to snow parties, Winter Fest in Queenstown is the biggest party of all! Running over a week and featuring balls, charity events, fun days and exclusive dinners not to mention lots of fun on the snow; Queenstown is the place to be.
- Despite the earthquakes that Christchurch experienced in 2011, there's lots to see and do!
- Wanaka is home to the biannual Warbirds over Wanaka - a spectacular air show displaying classic military craft from all over the world. An absolute must see.
- Also on your Must Visit list is Akaroa. Originally settled by the French, it's a gorgeous town with equally beautiful scenery as you get there. Fish n Chips on the pier is a kiwi tradition! It's also the best place to see Hector's Dolphins - the smallest dolphins in the world. Book a trip out - you might even get to swim with them.
