What popular events take place in New Zealand?

New Zealand has a thriving arts and culture scene and hosts a wealth of food, sport and music events throughout the year. Book a flight to New Zealand to sample local produce and wine, learn about Māori culture or enjoy lively arts festivals. Matariki is Māori New Year, and is celebrated in June with events throughout the country that show respect for the land, culture, language and spirituality of New Zealand. Activities include haka performances, music and dance, art exhibitions and workshops. One of the longest-running festivals is the annual Fringe Festival in Wellington, which takes place over three weeks during February and March. This is a great time to visit the creative capital and see live performances throughout the city, including cabaret, clowning, comedy, film, puppetry, theatre and visual art. The Queenstown Winter Festival is a three-day celebration that marks the beginning of the winter season in Queenstown with a host of action-packed events such as skiing and snowboarding competitions, as well as music, entertainment, and food stalls.

Is New Zealand known for specific food/cuisine?

While each region has its own local specialities, local favourites include grass-fed lamb and venison, as well as the freshest crayfish and shellfish. To get an authentic taste of Māori culture, try the traditional Māori hangi, where meat, fish and sweet potato are wrapped in leaves or cloth sacks, placed on heated volcanic stones in a pit dug in the ground, covered in earth and cooked for some hours. There are also a wide range of food festivals where you can sample local cuisine including the Whitianga Scallop Festival and the MarchFest craft beer festival in Nelson. The Hokitika Wildfoods Festival offers visitors an opportunity to sample wild and unusual foods from the west coast including huhu grubs and mountain oysters. For the best locally produced wines, wine lovers shouldn’t miss Toast Martinborough and the Rhythm and Vines Music Festival in Gisborne. Visitors should also try fish and chips by the beach and classic pavlova, a dessert made from meringues, whipped cream and fresh summer berries.

Bring a spade and create your own natural jacuzzi at Hot Water Beach on the Coromandel Peninsula, where you can build a private pool at low tide, which becomes filled with natural mineral water that emerges through the golden sand. Visit spectacular Milford Sound in Fiordland National Park to see towering peaks, waterfalls and glassy waters. Take a boat trip through the fascinating Waitomo Caves in the North island, which is a grotto lit by thousands of glow worms. Family-friendly activities include skygazing at Mount Cook, home to the darkest skies in the world and whale-watching at Kaikoura. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can try skydiving, bungy jumping, climbing, caving or rafting, or head to the ski slopes in the north and south islands for skiing and snowboarding.

What passport or visa requirements are there when visiting New Zealand?

Citizens of the United Kingdom are not required to obtain a visa to enter New Zealand if you are visiting for up to six months.
