Hamilton — 9 nights

Tron

On the banks of the Waikato River lies Hamilton, a pretty, active city on North Island.
Step off the beaten path and head to Waimarino Adventure Park and Caveworld. Explore Hamilton's surroundings by going to Okere Falls Track (in Okere Falls), Rotorua (Eat Street, Fancy Meow Cat Cafe, &more) and Wairere Falls (in Okauia). There's much more to do: see the interesting displays at Classics Museum, see where the action happens at Seddon Park, walk around Hamilton Lake Domain, and kick back and relax at Pilot Bay.

For where to stay, more things to do, photos, and more tourist information, read our Hamilton day trip planning website.

Harbour Capital

Wellington, the world's southernmost capital city and New Zealand's second most populous urban area, combines the nation's rugged history and nature with its modern and cosmopolitan present.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Lady Norwood Rose Garden and Space Place at Carter Observatory. Change things up with these side-trips from Wellington: Marlborough Sounds (in Picton), Patuna Farm Adventures (in Martinborough) and Mount Stokes (in Kenepuru). There's lots more to do: take in the views from City to Sea Bridge, head off the coast to Matiu / Somes Island, get the lay of the land with Walking tours, and take a tour by water with Boat Tours & Water Sports.
