While fly fishing in New Zealand is great for adults, many itineraries must also account for activities focused around family members and younger travelers. The value of using The Best of New Zealand is that our experts can seamlessly intertwine fun family adventures within a larger itinerary for anglers. 

The Auckland Botanical Gardens is one of the many examples of a family activity that our team has experienced and is familiar with around New Zealand. It not only provides a great stopping point in the morning upon entering the country from the US (delicious cafe is open early in the morning) but provides something of interest for those aged 2 to 92. On Sundays the “Wiri Rambler” train will run throughout the park and for a nominal fee ($2 NZD for adults, $1 NZD for kids up to 13, free for kids under 5) and provide tours of the Gardens- a fun ride for the kids and a great way to learn as well.

A few other favorites around the country include: 

  • Gondola Rides up to the peaks above Queenstown
  • Family walks in the native forest and thermal areas
  • Farm Shows: Absorb the sights and smells of an authentic Kiwi farm, taste kiwifruit and honey, and take a wagon ride across lush farmland. Farms throughout New Zealand are great chances for the little ones to pet baby animals in a farm nursery, hand-feed a lamb or milk a cow.
  • Herding Displays: Showing how high mountain stations rely on dogs to coral and control the herd
  • Kid-oriented museums and amusement parks
  • Zoos and Kiwi bird observation opportunities
  • Downhill Luge

While many opportunities exist around New Zealand to experience the uniqueness of the country, the value in leveraging our expertise is that our staff understands which are the best tours, gardens and activities from years of experience! We deliver a well thought out plan and alleviate your worries.
