New Zealand is a great place for a family adventure. Rent a car to make transporting everyone easy: vehicles of all sizes are available, including people-movers that will carry families without any fuss.
Both self-contained motels or apartments (with kitchen and laundry facilities) and camping grounds and holiday parks are an excellent option for families. Once the practicalities are sorted, it’s all about fun for the family – fortunately many of New Zealand’s iconic activities are suitable for all ages. Animal encounters rank highly among the young ones, whether it’s horse trekking, a visit to a zoo, or farm stay activities. Adventure and theme parks are popular, and so are beach visits and water activities like boating and kayaking. On rainy days take your pick from a myriad of museums and kid-friendly educational attractions. With interactive displays and science attractions, touch-tanks, hands-on exhibits and museum activities for kids, boredom is out of the question – guaranteed!
