New Zealand is a country where fun, outdoor experiences are the name of the game. From bungee jumping in Queenstown to exploring the wilderness of Northland, there is a genuine plethora of things to see and do outside in this fabulous country.
As a nation that consists primarily of two main islands, neither of which are particularly wide, the beach is never far away. In fact, Te Ara encyclopaedia states that no location here is more than 130 kilometres from the great blue, and there is around 18,000 kilometres' worth of coastline to be explored.
