              How to tailor make your holiday
NEW ZEALAND




              At Qantas Holidays we believe in offering the customer direction and choice. The
              following pages present a broad range of holiday components that can be combined
              to create the perfect itinerary. Follow our simple step by step guide to tailor making
              your holiday.



              STEP 1: Plan your itinerary
                      Start by plotting the areas you wish to visit and how long you want to spend in each place.
                      The following pages will provide assistance, including detailed destination information and ideas on places to stay and things to do.
                      Our travel consultants will also be on hand to guide you through the process and offer suggestions.

              STEP 2: Book your flights
                      See pages 6 & 7 for more details on the Qantas & British Airways network, offering a multitude of routes worldwide.

              STEP 3: Decide how to get around
                      New Zealand offers an endless choice of transport options.
                      Consider the time you have available to make each journey, your budget and the type of experience you wish to gain.
                      Domestic flights offer an inexpensive and fast solution to reach your destination. Motorhome & car hire provides a more flexible and
                      scenic experience, you may also wish to join one of the scenic rail journeys. Alternatively, enjoy an escorted tour, where all of your travel
                      arrangements will be taken care of from start to finish.

              STEP 4: Select your accommodation
                      ‘Variety is the spice of life’ - Qantas Holidays offer an extensive range of accommodation to suit everyone, from the budget conscious,
                      the family friendly to the indulgent traveller. Whatever your style we can accommodate your needs, with additional accommodation available
                      that is not featured in the brochure - please ask for more details.
                       To help simplify the decision making process, we have graded each hotel and hand picked a selection of hotels that require special attention,
                       from ‘unique & boutique’ to hotels that offer ‘great value’ for money. These symbols are purely a guide and are not based on any official
                       grading system.
                       Accommodation ratings
                       Luxury Lodge - Small and luxurious lodges offering a variety of services and activities.           You won’t ever want to leave.
                              You’re treating yourself, but what are holidays for?      It’s reasonable and relaxed - just like you when you’re away.
                        This represents a half rating in addition to the above, where a hotel falls in between categories.
                       Special accommodation symbols

                       Qantas Holidays View:
                       In addition to the symbols and ratings, we have carefully tailored a synopsis on each property, to expand upon a point of difference
                       or unique offering. A member of the Qantas Holidays team has written each view, following an inspection of the property.
                       Bonus Nights & Value Offers:
                       Look out for any bonus or value offers throughout the brochure and you could benefit from free nights, upgraded rooms or free meals.

              STEP 5: Select your experiences
                      New Zealand is home to a wealth of experiences that can be enjoyed in a day or over a number of days, where distances and the range
                      of experiences are vast. Your experience choice is key to gaining the most from your holiday and we would strongly recommend you
                      pre-book to avoid any disappointment. Below is a guide to assist with identifying the range of touring options.

NEW ZEALAND - NORTH ISLAND

                             surprise that the North Island is an attractive destination choice.

                             The beautiful harbour city of Auckland is likely to be your arrival point into the North
                             Island and many of the city’s attractions are centred around the stunning waterfront
                             harbour area.




                             Just North of Auckland lies the tranquil Bay of Islands, an aquatic playground surrounded
                             by idyllic beaches offering a host of recreational activities, from snorkelling, kayaking or
                             swimming with dolphins.

                             The calming Pacific Ocean hugs the east coast, playing along the bays and beaches from
                             the tip of the Coromandel curving into the Bay of Plenty through to Napier and beyond.
                             This stretch of coastline is home to long sandy beaches, marine experiences, the fertile wine

Many of the North Island’s lakes are the result of ancient volcanic eruptions. The biggest
of these crater lakes is Taupo - it’s the size of a small country and one of the top trout
fishing destinations.

At the Southern tip of the North Island is the culturally rich capital city of Wellington. Home
to some of the nation’s best galleries and museums, including the national Maori museum of
Te Papa. To the east of Wellington lies the charming village of Martinborough, a spectacular
wine growing region with 30 vineyards accessible by foot.

NEW ZEALAND - AUCKLAND HOTELS




                                      Auckland is a vibrant international city that blends sophistication with an eclectic mix
                                      of cultures. Blessed with beautiful beaches, forest walks and situated between three
                                      harbours, it’s no surprise that Auckland’s lifestyle is ranked among the best in the world.
                                      A visit to the neighbouring island of Waiheke is a must - its bohemian lifestyle,
                                      deserted beaches and sprawling vineyards, make it the perfect indulgent retreat.

                                      West Coast & Glaciers
NEW ZEALAND - WEST COAST & GLACIERS




                                      Famed as New Zealand’s pioneer heartland, the West Coast is a vast and rugged
                                      region characterised by dramatic landscapes and rich human history. Legends and stories
                                      from the past cling to every feature of the landscape. Maori were first to discover
                                      the West Coast, seeking sacred pounamu (nephrite jade or greenstone).




                                      The region boasts five National Parks, including an array of scenic wonders, from New
                                      Zealand’s highest mountains, lowest glaciers, most exquisite lowland forests, wildest beaches,
                                      longest caves and most stunning natural rivers.

                                      Glacier Country
                                      Of all the glaciers in the Southern Alps, only the Franz Josef and Fox glaciers have crept as
                                      far as the rainforests. These giant tongues of ice have squeezed down their valleys to just 250
                                      metres above sea level. Immerse yourself in this glacier wonderland on a guided walk through

       An extraordinary alpine region of ice and rock, with glaciers covering 40% of its area,
       19 peaks towering over 3,000 metres high, including New Zealand’s highest mountain
       Aoraki Mount Cook. The drive through this area is spectacular with magnificent views of
       the Southern Alps and on the way you will pass turquoise glacial lakes such as Lake Tekapo.
       In the centre of the South Island of New Zealand lies Lake Tekapo. This highland lake and
       settlement at 710 metres is in the heart of the Mackenzie District and surrounded by a vast
       basin of golden tussock grass. Finely ground rock in the glacial melted waters give Lake

NEW ZEALAND - SOUTHERN LAKES & DUNEDIN




                                         The Southern Lakes is one of the most diverse and beautiful regions not only
                                         in New Zealand but also the world. From soaring mountains to a wild and deserted
                                         coastline, golden hill country to crystal alpine lakes, visitors are captivated
                                         by the breathtaking scenery and culture of the area.




                                         The area runs from the dramatic landscapes
                                         of Fiordland in the south, to the rugged
                                         mountains and established, international
                                         four-season resort of Queenstown and to
                                         Lake Wanaka in the north, an inspiring place
                                         of tranquillity and beauty at the gateway to
                                         Mount Aspiring National Park.

                                         To the east of the Southern Lakes region
                                         lies Dunedin, affectionately known as
                                         ‘the Edinburgh of the south’. Dunedin is
                                         renowned for its abundance of Victorian and
                                         Edwardian architecture, as well as its close
                                         proximity to rare wildlife.
