There are plenty of New Zealand vacation packages to choose from, varying in length from a few days to a few weeks. New Zealand is just a few hours flying time from the east coast of Australia, making it an obvious vacation destination. The country is well known for its diverse and spectacular scenery, which includes mountains, forests, fjords and glaciers. It’s also a major wine producer, and vacation packages to New Zealand allow you to explore the many wineries on both North and South Island. Although the country is known for its natural wonders, the cities of Auckland, Christchurch and Wellington have plenty to offer visitors, and the smaller city of Queenstown has become known as the extreme sports capital of the world. And no visit to New Zealand is complete without sampling some of the traditional Maori culture and hospitality.
