New Zealand Sightseeing & Attractions
TranzAlpine Rail Jouney
Operating between Christchurch and the west coast city of Greymouth, this popular rail journey is the perfect way to see the stunning sights of the South Island. Travel through the Canterbury Plains, up the Southern Alps and the village of Arthurs Pass, and descend through historic Otira Tunnel. This enchanting journey can be enjoyed as a return day trip or as a sightseeing stop on a tour of the west coast.
Auckland Sky Tower
The tallest building in New Zealand, this giant needle type tower offers spectacular views of the Auckland CBD and surrounding coastal areas. Enjoy the birds-eye-view with a drink and lunch in the Sky Lounge or opt for something more adventurous. At a mere 192 feet above the ground, you can choose to step outside and walk around the tower’s 1.2 metre wide ledge or bungy jump your way back down to street level.
A nature lover’s wonderland, this distinctive outcrop across the Rangitoto Channel from Auckland is a geological treasure trove of attractions. Formed by volcanic eruptions, the island features fields of volcanic rock, exposed lava tubes and a fascinating array of rare ferns, flowers and trees.
Arguably New Zealand’s most popular tourist destination, Milford Sound is a large ocean inlet that was formed by glaciers over thousands of years. Surrounded by massive, rocky outcrops and mountains, the picturesque bay provides views of waterfalls and marine life such as whales, dolphins and even penguins.
