Rainy Days

The weather looks set to be wet for the next few days. Good news is, a;next week is shaping up to be great! and b; there’s so much to do indoors, so we thought we would share a few cool things to do, while keeping dry! Hit the links below for more info on each activity.

 

If you are in or around Auckland, why not check out a Maori Culture Performance at the Auckland Museum and get an insight into the History and Culture of New Zealand.

 

Blacklight Indoor Mini Golf is certainly a unique experience, located just 15 minutes from the CBD, it’s a little dark, a little spooky, and a lot of fun!

What about getting underwater at Kelly Tarlton’s SeaLife Aquarium .They have a great penguin expedition and for the more adventurous you can take a swim with the sharks!

Maybe you want to rent a car and get out of town? Waitomo caves are only a two hour drive away , and Hairy Feet Waitomo , a LOTR filmset, is only half an hour from the caves.

If you are already in or around Hamilton, or are planning a trip to the caves, you cannot go past the Otorohanga Kiwihouse, where you will not only see real live kiwi but a range of other NZ native animals and plants. In Hamilton CBD there is also a Flight Simulator where you can get in the cockpit and take the controls, as close as you can get to flying and landing a real plane.

The Coromandel area is beautiful in any weather, and soaking in your freshly dug spa pool at hot water beach is just perfect if it gets a little cold.

If you are in or around Wellington , take a guided tour through Te Papa , our national museum or check out the great exhibitions and huge range of New Zealand native species at Zealandia.

If you’re near the top of the South Island, you can’t go past the Omaka Aviation Heritage Centre , featuring Peter Jackson’s own collection of WW1 aircraft.
