  • Whangamata - Coastal CoolnessWhangamata - Coastal Coolness
    Submitted by Krister on February 7th, 2007
    Whangamata located in the greener than green Coromandel Peninsula, provides a great way to recharge your batteries on New Zealand’s east coast. A small town of close to 3500 residents explodes to somewhere between 40 and 60,000 during the summer holiday months. Although the growth in Whangamata has boomed in the last 20 years it hasn’t lost its cool kiwi style beachyness.

    Submitted by holidayLOVER on April 23rd, 2010

    It's coming to that time of the year when I organise our family annual ski holiday in New Zealand. We are huge fans of the stunning Queenstown-Wanaka region. If my budget was unlimited where would I stay? My key factors are location (scenic, close to ski fields, shopping etc) and facilities (luxury rooms, restaurant with delicious cuisine, hot tub etc).

    The internet has become the primary means of researching and planning a holiday or activity, so as a tourism operator, it's vital to establish yourself online with an effective web presence. In the current web climate, this means much more than simply having a website. You need to be actively involved in social media, creating an open dialog with past and potential customers.

  • Oamaru – One of New Zealand’s Greatest Treasures and Hidden SecretsOamaru – One of New Zealand’s Greatest Treasures and Hidden Secrets
    Submitted by wordofmouth on October 9th, 2010
    If you are not a surfer, sunbather, climber or boatie, Oamaru is possibly the best destinations in New Zealand. Standing on the cobbled corner of Harbour and Tyne Street, I am cast back 130 years in time among a wealth of historic architectural treasures. There is no evidence of anything other than Victorian architecture. I amble down the lane with its old rail line still running down the side, where trains picked up sacks or grain to be loaded on to bowsprits, spars and fully rigged triple-masters on Sumpter wharf in the harbour.
