  • Bird Watching in New ZealandBird Watching in New Zealand
    Submitted by holidayLOVER on July 18th, 2008

    New Zealand was a land of birds before humans arrived on our shores between 800 and 1200 AD. The only mammals found in New Zealand prior to the arrival of Maori were two species of native bats and those that could swim here, for example seals and sea lions. Due to the lack of predators and the relative isolation of the birds in New Zealand, many endemic birds are quite unique.

    Submitted by wordofmouth on June 22nd, 2011
    At last New Zealand tourism has got some great news. Maison de la Mer, a petite lodge, just an hour from quake-hit Christchurch, has been named among the top 10 Bed and Breakfast Inns (B&Bs) in the world, according to Trip Advisor. New Zealand and Christchurch tourism have been savaged by a series of earthquakes since September 4 but the accolades just announced by Trip Advisor for Akaroa are a huge boost to the battered region.

    Submitted by holidayLOVER on September 19th, 2008

    Running a successful backpacker hostel is a fun and rewarding business. People attracted to running their own hostel normally are outgoing, social people with large personalities and smiles. Some people set up a hostel after being backpackers themselves. So what makes some hostels more financially successful than others? The key is to attract as many guests as possible and get guests to stay at your accommodation longer.

    Golf in New Zealand dates back to 1871. It was first recorded having being played in Rotorua in 1902. Golf was played at various venues in and around the Rotorua area on a casual basis until 1906 when the Rotorua Golf Club was formed. Having moved around different locations during the early years the Rotorua Golf Club arrived at Arikikapakapa reserve in 1912 and has been situated there since.

  • Unique NZ Food Experience - the main actorUnique NZ Food Experience - the main actor
    Submitted by hartmindfood on May 5th, 2011
    Ask most New Zealanders to describe New Zealand cuisine and we struggle for an answer or that we don’t have one - that New Zealand is too young, too multi-cultural, or too British ... Yet when asked to describe a New Zealand food experience we easily share common stories that all celebrate our own history and fabric of life. The tastes and smells directly linking us to memories that connect with our own land and culture. For me, this is the basis of Gastro-tourism – making a direct link - a cultural shortcut - to the land through its food.
