White Island Volcano - Just Incredible

29 April 2011

Flight Centre's social media specialist Sam Locke, along with thousands of bloggers from around the world is setting out to remind travellers that New Zealand is an awesome holiday destination.

New Zealand may be a lot of things, but one thing it's not is a country in devastation. After the 6.3 magnitude earthquake struck Christchurch there is no doubt that this country needs our support more than ever. Luckily for us there are literally thousands of unique adventure destinations, relaxation retreats, fabulous skiing and snowboarding, beautiful beaches, Maori culture, food, wine, and the list goes on.

 New Zealand

I have clicked upon British media sensation, humorist, presenter, filmaker, producer and author Danny Wallace who was brave enough to explore New Zealand's, active marine volcano, White Island.

Danny compares being on the Volcano to being on the moon. This beautiful beast of nature is estimated to be somewhere between 100 and 200 thousand years old. White Island is located in the Bay Of Plenty off the south west coast of the North Island.

Wallace speaks of New Zealand and White Island, "...such obvious beauty. Striking beauty and natural wonder, but this is something else. Something you don't see."

See White Island for yourself by watching Danny's video below.
