Test your physical limits or take a few days for yourself
If you thought a weekend wasn't enough time to take off on an international adventure, think again! If you have a few days of leave up your sleeve, why not book one of Flight Centre's short breaks to New Zealand? It's no secret that New Zealand is one of the most picturesque places in the world, providing the ultimate backdrop for blockbuster films and brilliant weekend escapes. A short flight could see you skiing the slopes of Queenstown, bungy jumping in Auckland or cheering near the try line as the Wallabies take on the All Blacks in Wellington.
Starting on the north island, New Zealand's capital Wellington sits comfortably between rolling hills and a glittering harbour, luring visitors with a vibrant arts scene, natural embellishments and overtones of gourmet dining. Like most of the country, Wellington caters to adrenaline junkies with plenty of outdoor activities taking place in surrounding mountains and seaside. On the south island, resilient Christchurch also packs a punch offering skiing, white water rafting and bungy jumping for an energetic weekend getaway, and pristine alps, lakes and glaciers for a romantic sojourn to nature.
Whether you are looking to test your physical limits on a heart pumping holiday or want to take a few days for yourself, Auckland has what you're looking for. Auckland city sparkles against the harbour but out of town is where the magic happens. Ask a Flight Centre consultant about hiring a car and take to the road for wine tasting tours in the north or wilderness quad-biking in the west. Head off Auckland's coast to climb volcanoes on Rangitoto Island, or venture south to Rotorua and experience authentic Maori culture between visits to steamy geothermic geysers. A short break in New Zealand will never leave you short-changed on excitement.
