    Submitted by rotoruagolfclub on August 1st, 2012
    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.

    Submitted by wordofmouth on May 2nd, 2012
    Hanmer Springs - Shut your eyes. Imagine lazing in a steamy private hot pool with someone special at New Zealand’s top thermal pool resort – Hanmer Springs. The sun is setting over the picture postcard snow-capped mountains. Not a sound can be heard but the occasional bellbird call. It feels so romantic. But there are more these days to Hanmer than just the busiest hot pools in New Zealand.

  • Queenstown is like a Seductive MagnetQueenstown is like a Seductive Magnet
    Submitted by wordofmouth on March 10th, 2012
    It’s like a dream come true. My dawn charter flight makes its final approach into Queenstown Airport which has just been voted among the best approaches in the world. This spectacular New Zealand resort is the adventure capital of the world and I am blown away by the summer scenery. It’s no wonder Queenstown with its magnificent scenery and high octane activities is ranked eighth on Lonely Planet's list of top 10 places in the world to visit this year. Queenstown is no longer just a winter skiing destination. It offers fuel-injected fun all summer long.

    Submitted by wippywoppy on February 3rd, 2012
    Our family is a regular visitor to the beautiful Whangamata on the Coromandel at every opportunity and in the recent summer holiday break we discovered an activity suitable for our whole family , and an alternative to the surf and sand of Whangamata. The Luck at Last Mine walk is 7km north of Whangamata , a pleasent and easy 50-60 minute walk each way through forest, and bush, following a stream to old mining relics.

  • Surfing New ZealandSurfing New Zealand
    Submitted by WOWSURF on January 2nd, 2012
    There is something about the sport of Surfing that is unlike any other pursuit in the world. It combines one of the most beautiful & unpredictable elements we know - the ocean, with simple human strength of body and mind. As world populations expand and the popular sport of surfing builds, New Zealand is becoming one of the best places on earth to learn to surf. Why? Because we have such a variety of surf breaks to choose from, there are well over 470 and a relatively small population of people, which means that there is more space and therefore a friendlier vibe for our beginners to build their skills.

    Submitted by holidayLOVER on October 27th, 2011

    Here is another handy list of some AMAZING websites designed for children. Great websites to keep your little ones amused on those rainy days. There's plenty of games, colouring pages, word finds etc. I've put in a few rugby sites in to the list this time, as now that the mighty All Blacks have won the Rugby World Cup 2011 there's even more kids who are rugby-mad. Below is a diverse array sites, so there should be at least a few to appeal to each child...they can be a fussy bunch!

  • Oamaru – the most wonderfully anachronistic centre in New ZealandOamaru – the most wonderfully anachronistic centre in New Zealand
    Submitted by wordofmouth on October 7th, 2011
    Oamaru is as wonderfully anachronistic as a 21st century tourist attraction as fax machines are to businesses. The sleepy North Otago settlement has possibly one of the best compact collections of Victorian architecture in the world. It’s like going back in time and the town itself is embracing the Victorian heritage theme with both hands.
