Map of New Zealand
New Zealand repeatedly features in the top ten places to visit – and you never meet anyone who has been and doesn’t love the place. With craggy coastlines, sweeping beaches, primeval forests, snowcapped mountains and impressive geysers, the scenery is truly majestic. The country comes inhabited by unique wildlife, while penguins, whales and seals ring the coast. New Zealand’s first settlers, the Maori, retain distinct and fascinating customs overlaid by colonial European and increasingly Asian cultures that together create a vibrant, if understated, urban life. From the finest seafood restaurants to the hike of a lifetime, New Zealand has it all.
Whether visiting cosmopolitan Auckland or trendy Wellington, driving the length of Ninety Mile Beach, or kayaking the waters of stunning Abel Tasman National Park, our map of New Zealand will help you plan your trip to generous and friendly country.Find out more about New Zealandchevron_right
