Journeys : Dec Jan 2010
The magnificent Southern Lakes region of New Zealand is unique. Visually- arresting natural features share centre stage with vibrant resort tow ns, rich cultural diversity and heritage, striking mountain ranges and sophisticated hospitality. The Souther n Lakes scenery and culture has inspired Hollywood movie-makers, artists, authors, musicians and adventurers as well as more usual everyday people. Queenstow n, Lake Wanaka and Te Anau are lakeside resorts that share an adventurous spirit and natural splendour. Queenstow n and Wanaka are separated by just one hour's drive over the Crow n Range; these much loved alpine playgrounds have subtly-different New Zealand's inspiring Southern Lakes atmospheres. Further south, the resort tow n of Te Anau is an ideal base for exploring Fiordland National Park, New Zealand's largest national park and a World Heritage area. Queenstow n is renow ned for adventure. But there's much more to do there -- bungy jumping to wine trails, jet boating to tramping, dining out to skiing, rugged mountains to the majestic lakes and crystal clear air. The area has captured hearts and imaginations since the first Maori came in search of pounamu (greenstone) and the giant Moa bird. An organised tour of New Zealand is an ideal way to experience the Souther n Lakes region and other beautiful locations in New Zealand. And with Grand Pacific Tours' fantastic range of New Zealand Holidays, from 10 to 19 days, there's no better time to discover the Land of the Long White Cloud.
