If you want to give your New Zealand holiday a theme, Kirra Tours can make it possible. Wine would be an inspired choice. On the Classic New Zealand Wine Trail of both the North and South Islands, you'll discover the best of New Zealand's fabulous scenery and wine regions. And where there's wine, there's always great food -- locally-grow n fruit and vegetables, boutique cheeses, tender lamb and an ocean of seafood. As well as food and wine, there's plenty to keep you entertained during your jour ney. Hawke's Bay is known for its Art Deco architecture, gourmet cooking schools and the remarkable gannet colony at Cape Kidnappers. Tararua is where you can hike through a forest park, visit a wildlife centre and take a tour of the iconic Tui Brewery at Mangatainoka. Around the Wairarapa wine region, historic tow ns offer a tempting mix of shopping and dining experiences. In the capital city of Wellington you can explore New Zealand's culture with visits to the national museum Te Papa, live theatre and restaurants. Over Cook Strait are the beautiful Marlborough Sounds, where you can bike, hike or kayak the famous Queen Charlotte Track. There are more than 50 wineries to visit around Marlborough; many offer the additional pleasure of a vineyard restaurant. Take it slowly and savour every sip of the journey -- you'll soon see why New Zealand is the perfect choice for a wine-in spired holiday.
