From wildlife experiences, interactive cultural activities and unforgettable adventures, our backyard has plenty of things to do during the family holidays.

The wide selection of activities for kids range from cultural experiences, and wildlife encounters, to nature-based activities and to thrill-seeking adventures. 

Learn about the country’s rich Māori culture and history of the land. Explore the many museums and galleries around New Zealand. See the iconic Kiwi bird, swim with dolphins, and discover some of New Zealand's unique wildlife in one of the many animal parks and zoos. Take the family outdoors and explore the endless walking and cycling tracks. Discover the stretches of sandy beaches or wander through the native forests. Thrill-seekers won’t miss out on many activities that are suitable activities for kids. Zoom down a hill on a luge or in a Zorb, hit the slopes for skiing in winter, or dart along a river in a jet-boat.

These are only a few of the things you can do on a family holiday in New Zealand; the challenge will be deciding what to do first! If you'd like some help to get started, try out our New Finder game - maybe the kids can have a go too and find something new for the family to do!
