New Zealand Highlights

With huge diversity and variety, New Zealand is in a league of its own when it comes to landscapes. From the giant kauri trees in Parry Kauri Park to the famous Waitomo Caves, the beautifully coloured hot springs of Rotorua to the mesmerising Lake Wakatipu, expect picture-postcard scenery at every turn.  

No holiday in New Zealand would be complete without uncovering the culture, heritage and traditions of the Māori people. Known as the indigenous Polynesian population of New Zealand, you can experience the warmth of the Māori people during an evening of ceremonial rituals, powerful cultural performance, storytelling & hāngī feasting in Rotorua. If you’d like to learn more about New Zealand’s history, a visit to the Waitangi Treaty House is a must; located on the Bay of Islands, this is where the founding document of New Zealand was signed.  

With other highlights including the sights of big cities, such as Auckland’s Sky Tower and Christchurch’s Botanical Gardens, there really is something for everyone to enjoy in New Zealand.

Food and Drink

Lemon & Paeroa

Commonly known as L&P, Lemon & Paeroa is one of the most popular drinks produced in New Zealand. The name of the beverage stems from the town it was first produced in, Paeroa. It tastes similar to Sprite but with a stronger lemon flavour and less bitterness.


Hāngī is not just a way of cooking; it is an integral part of Māori culture. Meat and vegetables are wrapped in leaves, and then cooked in a covered pit lined with hot stones and fire. As it takes a full day to prepare Hāngī is usually saved for special occasions, but the final result is absolutely delicious!  

Kiwi BBQ

The act of cooking outside plays a huge part in New Zealand’s culture, hence why barbecues are so popular! All-time favourites include sausages, steak, lamb chops and burgers, but you may also find corn cobs, salmon, paua fritters and much more!  

Planning your trip

With so much on offer, you might need some inspiration! We’ve hand-picked a selection of favourite destinations and provided an overview of the very best highlights...


Auckland Highlights

Sky Tower

Standing at 328m high, the Sky Tower is Auckland’s most prominent landmark, and the country’s tallest building. Once at the top you can take in spectacular panoramic views of Auckland, ancient volcanoes, sunlit harbours and more – remember to bring your camera!  

Auckland Museum

From ancient civilizations to West Auckland wildlife, Auckland Museum has a huge range of exhibitions and displays. Discover more about the people of the Pacific and New Zealand at the Māori galleries, or learn about the role New Zealand has played in major conflict through war memorials.   

Auckland Waterfront

Auckland Waterfront is made up of three key areas – Wynyard Quarter, Viaduct Harbour and Queens Wharf. Created in the 90s when Auckland was preparing to host the America’s Cup, Viaduct Harbour is now home to over 30 bars and restaurants, making it the perfect place for people watching!  


Queenstown Highlights

Lake Wakatipu

Shaped like a lightning bolt, Lake Wakatipu is the third largest lake in New Zealand. Legend has it that a monster named Matau is resting at the bottom of the lake, and its heartbeat is the reason why the water rises and falls by 10cm every 20-25 minutes. Renowned for its majestic beauty, this is the perfect setting for a relaxing stroll.  

TSS Earnslaw

One of the best ways to take in Queenstown’s surrounding landscape is the TSS Earnslaw! Dating back to 1912, this classic old steamer was used in the gold rush days, and now offers cruises around the lake. Take time to explore the vessel, view the engine room, study the displays of the ships’ former life and admire the views of the Remarkable mountain range.   

Queenstown Gardens

Situated right on the banks of Lake Wakatipu, Queenstown Gardens offers a tranquil sanctuary away from the hustle and bustle of the town. You’ll find a wide range of both native and international trees and plants, pristine lawns, a rose garden and a water feature.  


Christchurch Highlights

Botanic Gardens

A prominent city-centre attraction since 1863, the Christchurch Botanic Gardens boast an array of flowering gardens, native trees and plant conservatories. The displays and plants are constantly changing, and you’ll find a variety of both exotic and local fauna and flora.  


One of the best ways to see all city’s key landmarks and attractions are the beautifully resorted heritage tramcars! You’ll be accompanied by a friendly and knowledgeable driver who’ll provide an informative commentary, taking you to sights including the Terrace & Riverside Market, Margaret Mahy Playground and New Regent Street.  

Tranz-Alpine Train

Experience the South Island’s striking natural landscapes when you journey on the Tranz-Alpine Train! Operating from the east coast to the west coast, you’ll see the fields of the Canterbury Plains and the spectacular gorges and river valleys of the Waimakariri River. 

Bay of Islands

Bay of Islands Highlights

Waitangi Treaty House

The history of New Zealand begins at Waitangi Treaty House. It is here that the founding document of the country, known as the Treaty of Waitangi, was signed. The Treaty House, which was built as the residence of James Busby, has been beautifully resorted and is now a small museum.  


Founded in 1843 as a trading post, Russell is one of New Zealand’s quaintest towns. The town’s streets retain their original layout, and you can still visit many of the historic buildings including Christ Church, Pompallier House and the Duke of Marlborough.   


A town full of character, charm and flavour, Kerikeri is an idyllic place where time seems to stand still. It was one of New Zealand’s earliest missionary settlements, and historic sights from this era still remain. Visit the Kerikeri Mission House – New Zealand’s oldest standing European building – and view the authentic exhibits at the Stone Store.

Just returned from a short river cruise on The Rhine which was lovely and our drivers Ian and Trina were amazing. However, I feel that Leger have let their standards drop to Shearings level since taking over the company. The Leger coaches are far superior to the Shearing brand and I don’t understand why they continue using them or advertise Shearing holidays. While the boat we sailed on was very nice I was disappointed that there was no choice of lunch or dinner menu apart from one night when you could choose meat, fish or vegetarian. Not the Leger standard I remember from previous holidays I’m afraid. People on our feeder coach that had been on a different holiday had a much worse experience and had to go out for a meal as the food was so bad in their hotel! Please drop the Shearings brand completely Leger and return to the high standards I previously enjoyed.

First time booking with Leger and it certainly won’t be my last. We were picked up in Reading and the drivers were fab. I want to say a big shout out to Dave & Rory who were absolutely brilliant the whole time. They were a great laugh. Hotel was clean and breakfast was lovely. Thanks Dave & Rory who are a huge credit to Leger.
