Check out city and culture

NEW Zealand is known for its stunning natural beauty, fine wines, friendly culture and a twist of adventure.

Harvey World travel is offering great deals to two New Zealand cities, Auckland and Rotorua.

As the largest urban environment in New Zealand, Auckland has a feeling that is both sophisticated and easy-going.

A unique blend of idyllic islands, ancient rainforests, Polynesian culture, glistening harbours and a modern city environment create an enviable lifestyle.

Only half an hour away are beautiful beaches, mountain hiking trails and a dozen enchanted holiday islands.

Spend three nights at the Mecure Auckland from just $96 per person twin-share, including a Great Sights Discovery tour and all prepayable taxes.

Whatever the season, there’s something special about Rotorua.

Renowned for its geothermal activity, the region offers bubbling mud pools and hot mineral springs.

Steam from the region’s spectacular but pungent geysers drifts over the city. Just three hours’ drive from Auckland, in the heart of the North Island, Rotorua is known as the cultural centre of New Zealand. A land of legends, its Maori people delight in sharing their stories with visitors through music, dance and art.

Spend three nights at Novotel Rotorua from $457 per person twin-share, including four days Britz car hire, a hangi feast and concert and all prepayable taxes.
