5 Interesting Places To Visit In New Zealand

New Zealand is a fantastic place for your 2021 vacation, especially for travelers who plan to visit for the first time. If you plan to head over to New Zealand soon, here are five exciting places to visit once you land there!



  • Auckland, New Zealand

Auckland is rated among the best places for tourists. It is the largest city in New Zealand. The Auckland Airport hosts many international flights, so expect to see many tourists just like you. That adds even more color and diversity to the city, making it an excellent place to start exploring!

You can rest from your long flight and spend a day or two exploring places in Auckland like the Auckland Art gallery, Auckland Domain, and the Auckland bridge climb.

When it comes to accommodation, you need not worry because regardless of where you stay, you’ll always be within the proximity of somewhere or something exciting.


  • Queenstown, New Zealand

Queenstown has a reputation of being an adventure capital. It is located on the shores of Lake Wakatipu of the Southwest Island.

There are several excellent Queenstown activities you can engage in, such as skiing (the place is known for world-class skiing), skydiving, river rafting, and jet boating.

Queenstown is also home to Fergbugger, which CNN reports to have the best burger joint on the planet!


  • Bay of Islands

The Bay of Islands is about three hours away from Auckland by car. It is one of the best places to go in New Zealand.

There are many things to do in the Bay of islands, chief among them being scuba diving and an opportunity to explore the underwater world. You get to explore marine life, seeing both dolphins and whales up close.


  • Waiheke Island, New Zealand

This is one of the best places to visit in New Zealand for wine lovers; it has many vineyards, and we know you’ve to be spoilt for choice on which one to choose!

Waiheke is 30 minutes away from Auckland and is a small island located in the middle of the Hauraki Gulf. For breakfast, lunch, and dinner, the mudbrick Vineyard restaurant is the perfect place to be in.

We also advise you to book a culture tour, hiking trip, or a scenic flight to make your stay there enjoyable. Waiheke Island is also known for its beaches, forest, and exciting art community!
