Whether you’re an adventure seeker or a full-time chiller, there is something for everyone on the north island of New Zealand, and it’s a place that is certainly not one to be missed.
One minute you’ll find yourself on the shores of Manu Bay in Raglan, a world famous surf town with Byronesque beach atmosphere. Next minute, you’ll be shooting over to the East Coast to explore a town, home to the extinct volcano of Mount Maunganui, or over to The Coromandel for a swim at Hot Water Beach.
For the ‘Lord Of TheRings’ geeks out there, we recommend you release your inner hobbit by delving deep into the wonderful filming locations at Hobbiton. Grab a drink at the Green Dragon Inn and feel like one of the cast. With incredible scenery spanning edge to edge, it’s no wonder this place was used for filming Middle Earth.
