Let’s get outdoors. Explore places where the wild things live, plenty of space to observe wildlife caring for their young. Waterfalls are at their gorgeous best with winter flows, perhaps an extended soak in a nearby hot springs will cap off a day exploring the outdoors. Maori New Year is a cause for celebration and a great time to get out and about and a holiday highlight. For the patient visitor Southern night lights are universal glitter and glimmer with green waves tracing across Southern skies.
