Hello, could anyone tell me the approximate cost of a taxi from wellington international airport to Brittania Street Petone. thank you.
Hi, this weekend I am going to Wellington and spend 2 nights there (booked a $15 Auckland-Welly roundtrip via Manabus). Estimated time of arrival is around 8am - so I have 6 hours to spend around the city before I can finally check in YHA hostel. My places of interest would be:
For my first day I plan to visit Weta cave and Cable Car/Botanic Garden and then maybe have dinner at Cuba Street. Next day I plan to go to Mt. Victoria (free tour from YHA) and then Te papa.
Would love to hear if you have any suggestions on my planned activities!
I have visitors arriving at Auckland International Airport. They have a child, so how do the taxis do that? If they are on the ramp do they have access to child seats? Thanks for any insight.
When was the castle Pamela in Tirau built?
We'll be traveling in NZ in Jan 2015. We would like to do Tongariro Alpine crossing. We are traveling with our kids, 3 years old son and 8 months baby then. Would it be possible to do the hike by carrying them in backpack where they can sit or is it too hard for us?
All advice are appreciated! Thank you!
Does anyone knows if Hamilton is a great place for an exchange student to go? If the city have many choices of places to go out at night with friends?

We are new to Auckland having moved here a few months ago from Scotland. We have friends visiting 30th Dec with their children under 10, I am struggling for ideas other than have a BBQ and go to the beach for New Year? the Music festivals look great but as far as I can see they don't seem to be kid friendly...camping is tricky as we wouldn't have enough gear to accommodate all of us. Any suggestions ?? thanks in advance !
Kia Ora! Will be traveling for 2 months in NZ this October and the first thing I want to see is the Hobbiton in Mata mata. If say we are driving all the way up there, how long will it take? Is it better to book a hotel somewhere? Do I have to pay fees for entering the place too?
Can somebody please advice on transport options from Mangatepopo to Whakapapa village in the Afternoon in January 2015. I am looking to cut the Northern Circle Hike one day short.
Is there any public transport?
If not - can I schedule a private transport that picks me up around 4/5pm?
Thanks a lot
I am looking to do the Tongariro NC in January 2015 with my girlfriend. Both of us are moderately fit and have hiked before. After looking at various descriptions of the trek, I am not sure how to split it up. We don't want to rush things and are planning on spending 3 days/2 nights on the circuit, but we cannot do 4 days as this does not fit into our itinerary.
So which huts should we book to have the best possible experience (longer distances on the easier parts of the trek, more time in the rough parts and enough time to take pictures/enjoy the most scenic parts?
Thanks a lot in advance!
What is the cost for visiting the Troll Stroll?
What tour buses stop in Tirau?
Hi All. We have recently moved to NZ from the UK and are currently looking at farms around the Whangerei area. Most people we talk to say it is a beautiful place with incredible beaches, friendly people and a relaxed way of life but there are also a couple of negative comments which keep coming up ......... A big drug problem and hostility towards non-locals (especially immigrants!).
I would really appreciate people's honest views and opinions. I fully understand that every town/city has it's problem areas. We have two small boys (4.5 and 3) and I want to keep them safe and away from the problem areas but feel if we aren't accepted by locals and not supported in our work (beef farming) that we will on a plane back to the UK before you can say Tim Tams!
I fell in love with NZ after travelling extensively in 2000 and have visited 4 times since, so we have a good network of friends who are very supportive but they also have heard some negative comments and are concerned we may be choosing the wrong area to settle.
Thank you in advance.
I'll visit AKL next month and I know there are lots of expensive stuff there. I want to know how often do AKL stores (clothes etc) have sales? Every week? Month? Thank you

My Fiance and I are taking our honeymoon in Carins, Sydney, Auckland, and then Fiji. We will be at each place for about 4-5 days. Is there any suggestions for must sees or must do's in these areas. Also looking for unique romantic honeymoon type things? When we are in Cairns we are scuba diving the great barrier, and in Auckland we are spelunking with waitomo. Other then that any suggestions would be amazing! We are going in the end of May- June so I understand it will be warm in Cairns and Fiji and chilly in Sydney and Auckland. I would really love to go wine tasting in Auckland but haven't found enough information yet?
How are the insects in mid April ?

I didn't see a review of Waterside Restaurant and Bar in Taupo. I went there last week and it was the best steak I have ever eaten. Worth a look. Are you going to review it?
Will be arriving late night and staying downtown. What is best way to get there? Also good places to eat.
Thanks from Texas
Where could be a good location to have a nice dinner on 31 Dec and cosy fireworks sightseeing nearby ? Westhaven Marina is better than Devonport ? Thanks in advance.
I will be travelling New Zealand for 2 weeks in Feburary 2014.
I shall be arriving in Aukland and departing from Christchurch.
I have a car hired and will be staying in hotles and motels troughout the North and South Island.
As I will not be sure where I would be staying overnight from day to day I like to book my accomodation through the internet daily.
For this and other reasons I require mobile internet for which I already have an Australian Telstra "Dongle" and I hope only to buy the relevant SIM and provider service.
Can anyone confirm that New Zealand and Australia run the same Mobile and Mobile Internet networks please?
Is there a kiosk or company that provides such things at the Auckland Airport?
Thank you in keen anticipation.
when is the best time of the to visit Waipoua Forest?
