Kiwi Towns attractions, places to visit

Things to do and what to see

Mini guide to kiwi towns.

Our special project. Local tips where to go and what to see. The best bits are highlighted. Where to take a great selfie or what to do with the kids is flagged. For heritage fans who turned up and named the place is documented. Slow down and spend time in our kiwi towns. Find out places to visit on your road trip and where to go to find the next ‘big thing.’

And the notorious, the famous get a mention as well. Nothing like knowing who did what and where (in our kiwi towns).

Your road trip is a roadie, a self-driving discovery through scenic New Zealand and the story of Aotearora. No road trip is finished without visiting some of Aotearoa New Zealand’s settlements, small towns and dusty places where the only thing standing is a closed community hall.
