  • Tongariro National Park – Are you up for some adrenaline pumping adventure? Rock climbing maybe? Or, horse trekking perhaps? How about river rafter, or horse trekking or simple a walk on volcanic plateau tracks? If any of these attract you, then you should head to the Tongariro National Park. Some of NZ’s best fishing places are found in Tongariro Rivers. 
  • Napier Art Deco – Rich in history and one of the most tourist-visited towns in New Zealand today, the Napier Art Deco, back in 1931, was destroyed by earthquake and fire. It was in February 3, of the said year when a 7/8 Ritcher magnitude scale earthquake shook the town killing 161 people followed. It was then followed by a fire that brought bigger destructions. The disaster wiped out the town of Napier in less than an hour. About 4000 hectares in today’s Napier were undersea before that drastic earthquake raised those lands above sea level. 
  • Hicks Bay – A remote place to visit, surrounded by rugged mountains, beautiful beaches and is rich in Maori culture, Hicks Bay is your ultimate option if you are seeking for a refreshing short vacation. Here is where you can find the five-decade Hicks Bay motel that offers the traditional Kiwiana services to its guests. You should experience it yourself.
