  • Sidharth’s top 10 things to do in New Zealand

Bollywood heartthrob Sidharth Malhotra shares his top picks of things to do and places to see in New Zealand.

1. Skywalk in Auckland

Walk the circumference of the Sky Tower, 192 metres above Auckland city and enjoy “the most magnificent bird’s eye view of the gorgeous city”.

2. Sky dive in Queentown

Fly like a free bird 15,000 feet above the ground over the spectacular Southern Alps and blue lakes – the high of this adrenaline pumping activity is beyond words. NZone Skydive in Queenstown is one of the safest and best places for a sky dive.

3. Dive in the Poor Knights Island

It is one of the world’s top 10 diving destinations with beautiful corals and sea creatures, the world’s largest sea cave and home to the only living dinosaur species – the tuatara. Head out with the Dive Tutukaka team for a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

A fierce display of a tribe’s pride, strength and unity, the Haka – an ancient Maori war dance – is a mesmerising sight. The haka at the Waitangi Treaty Grounds is a cultural experience not to be missed when you’re in New Zealand!

9. Enjoy a barbecue

It’s the perfect way to spend a lazy holiday afternoon. Hog on fresh seafood and some of the world’s finest wines with a barbeque on the beach, riverside, in a park or at a luxury resort like Eagles Nest!

10. Visit Tane Mahuta
