Big Name Events and Locations
New Zealand’s largest city, Auckland in the North Island, rates as one of the best cities in the world, with all major airlines flying there. Auckland, known as the “city of sails”, is the current holder of the America’s Cup Yachting Trophy – the oldest international sporting trophy. The Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron (RNZYS) based in Auckland is the host club for the March 2021 races. New Zealand is home to the Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit. The Hobbiton Movie Set, located 90 minutes from Auckland, was a significant location used for The Lord of the Rings film trilogy and The Hobbit film series.
New Zealand is a jewel-green island nation, packed with trout-filled lakes, stunning tropical beaches, steaming thermal pools, native temperate rainforest, rolling lush farmland and snow-capped mountain ranges. Among its many treasures are vast unspoiled national parks, volcanic wonderlands, awesome primeval glaciers and deep, clear, freshwater lakes.
Experience the Kiwi-Spirit!
Above all, New Zealand gives the impression of openness: openness of opportunity for those who have settled here, openness from “Kiwis” towards visitors and open spaces to roam in. These are rare qualities in an increasingly crowded world. Destination Pacific New Zealand invites you to come on down and experience the Kiwi-spirit.
