New Zealand is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful countries in the world. Wrapped up in two islands it is quite astounding just what this stunning country offers.
The North Island is diverse with many amazing natural wonders. I am taking you on a wondrous journey back to my birthplace. Experience the working dairy farm where I grew up. The home farm was in our family for 4 generations. The Waikato is full of inspiring and unique places to visit and experience, along with the mountain to climb that sits behind the farm. I can guarantee you a myriad of interesting little surprises during your stay here.
We will be visiting also the Hawkes Bay area, which is across the other side of the island. We will take a wonderful scenic bus trip to get there. There is fun to be had, along with culture, native wildlife and lush New Zealand bush. And remember, there are no creepy crawlies to be worried about!
Come and see the North Island of New Zealand in its uniqueness. Come on a persoanl journey with me, going back in time to my roots where I show you nooks and crannies that not many know about.
