New Zealand has a wealth of family friendly destinations and activies to broaden the horizons and inspire all ages. Below are some of our top family suggestions...
The International Antarctic Centre in Christchurch - This is where all explorers and
scientists heading to Antarctica visit for training prior to their expedition. The museum here offers an insight into what they encounter. Attractions include a simulator of
the freezing conditions, a colony of Little Blue penguin, exhibits on past expeditions and a ride in a Hagglung; the all-terrain vehicle used to traverse the hostile environment.
Whale Watching in Kaikoura - Surrounded by spectacular landscape, with the rugged Seaward Kaikoura Range to the west and the Pacific Ocean to the east, Kaikoura is a great base to experience some of New Zealand’s best wildlife experiences. Marine mammal encounters are the highlight of any stay as whale, seal and dolphin permanently live in these coastal waters. Whale watching can be done by boat or scenic flight.
Kelly Tarlton's Underwater World in Auckland - The Underwater World allows you to see the rich variety of species living off New Zealand’s coastline, including shark, stingray and turtle.
Diamond Pass in Rotorua - If you are self-driving in Rotorua, the Rotorua Diamond Pass offers the flexibility to visit some of the city’s highlights at your own pace. Rainbow Springs is a nature park; Te Puia has bubbling mud pools and traditional Maori culture; and the Agrodome Sheep Stage Show exhibits modern New Zealand farming. At the
end of a day’s exploring, unwind in the thermal waters of the Polynesian Spa Complex.
