Wai-O-Tapu Thermal Wonderland

Wai-O-Tapu is a business operation with a ton of intriguing geothermal components pressed into a small region, including the bubbling, multihued Champagne Pool, foaming mud pool, shocking mineral porches and Lady Knox Geyser, which gushes off dependably at 10.15am and spouts up to 20m for 60 minutes. A standout amongst the most astonishing perspectives in the recreation center is of Champagne Pool, a hot spring that was framed more than 900 years prior by an aqueous ejection. While astonishing looking, one dunk in this pool could spell calamity as it’s rich in carbon dioxide, arsenic, and sulfides.

Kawarau Gorge Suspension Bridge

The Kawarau Gorge Suspension Bridge is an amazing structure which crosses a ravine fashioned by the Kawarau River, close to Gibbston in Central Otago. It was finished in late 1880. For more than 80 years the Kawarau Gorge Suspension Bridge was a key connection in the street system of the area and State Highway 6. The Kawarau Gorge Suspension Bridge crosses over the Kawarau River and offers jumpers and spectators with fantastic views of the gorge in all its natural glory.

Tasman Glacier Lake

Tasman Lake is situated in Mount Cook National Park on the nation’s South Island. The lake is shaped by the retreat of the Tasman Glacier and in the 1970s there was no lake by any stretch of the imagination. By 1990, the Lake was full-fledged, and it’s assessed that the lake will achieve most extreme size in the following 10-20 years. Shockingly there’s a restricted time left to see this stunning icy perspective. And the Tasman Glacier, 29km long and up to 3km wide can be seen thoroughly from the short walks that start from the Blue Lakes Shelter.

Castle Hill, Arthur’s Pass

A popular stop along the Great Alpine Highway and the ideal complexity to the rich beech woodland of Arthur’s Pass, this was once home to timberland life as well however over hundreds of years, the hedge has been cleared by both Maori and European pioneers. The arrangement got its name from the way that the limestone stones all through the range take the remains of an old mansion. Interesting facts: the front of the Christchurch Cathedral was made with limestone from Castle Hill and in 2002, the Dalai Lama named this spot an “Otherworldly Center of the Universe.”

Clay Cliffs

The Clay Cliffs are sharp pinnacles with narrow, deep ravines keeping them apart. They are made of layers of silt and gravel, deposited by rivers that flow from glaciers formed 1 to 2 million years ago. The cliffs are on the private land, there is a donation box, so you may donate $5 or more vehicle admission fee at Omarama Hot Tubs. Car park and walking tracks are available. It is said to be one of the vies that are almost out of place on earth.

Milford Sound

Milford Sound is by far the only fiords that can be accessed by road and the best known one of all. It is at most 16km from the head of the fiord to the sea, so visitors can easily travel all through it. With scenery that has remained the same throughout the ages, Milford Sound is very unlikely to disappoint you. This amazing place has received many compliments including the World’s Top Travel Destination by Tripadvisor and it was once called the “Eight Wonder of the World.” In 1883 Explorer James Hingston wrote “For thousands of feet upwards the eye looks upon straight cut rocky frontages, not worn smooth by time, or by wind or water, but as sharply defined and as fresh looking in all respects as if riven asunder but yesterday by the stupendous wedges of Titanic Masons.”

Cathedral Cove

Cathedral Cove is seemingly a standout amongst the most beautiful spots (and there are numerous) in The Coromandel Peninsula. From the stunning Habei Beach on the Coromandel Peninsula, one can walk to Cathedral Cove, where you will encounter a naturally formed archway. And from the north end of the beach, one hour walking track will lead you along the cliff top and then descends to the Cove. The beach there is sandy with trees along the shore, which makes it a perfect place for a swim or picnic.
