About the Ports

Milford Sound

For first-time visitors and lifelong natives alike, Milford Sound is one of the most immediately breathtaking places in New Zealand. The 22-km-long fjord is dominated by beautiful Mitre Peak and calmed by gorgeous waters that mirror the sheer peaks surrounding them. Although remote, Milford Sound has visitors come from all over the world to admire its raw, unspoiled beauty and rare marine life.

Doubtful Sound

Often referred to as the "Sound of Silence," Doubtful Sound is a tranquil, awe-inspiring destination known for its cascading waterfalls, looming mountains and rare marine life.

Dusky Sound

One of the most complex fjords on New Zealand's southern coast, Dusky Sound is a place of serene beauty.


As gateway to Queenstown's many adrenaline-pumping activities and guard to the unspoiled natural habitats of the Otago Peninsula, Dunedin, the second-largest city on the South Island, with its historic Victorian architecture, alternative collegiate vibe and outstanding outdoor recreation, stands second to none. Whether you want to peep at rare penguins, view historic buildings or take in a museum, Dunedin has it all and then some.


Named after a college at the University of Oxford, England, Christchurch has a reputation for being a conservative, "British" city. This may be true on the surface, but a bit of poking around this largest city of the South Island, population 360,000, will reveal a vibrant arts culture and adventurous spirit that is 100% "Kiwi."


The fact that Wellington has become New Zealand's fastest-growing weekend destination tells you something about the city. Sandwiched between steep hills on one side and the ocean on the other, New Zealand's second-largest city is a paradise.


Napier, a port city in the Hawke Bay region of New Zealand, is the art deco capital of the world. After a 7.9 magnitude earthquake, and subsequent fires, destroyed most of its commercial center in 1931, the city was rebuilt in the flamboyant art deco style prevalent at the time. The clean geometric lines, neon clocks and brightly lit fountains lend Napier a movie-set feel. Napier also boasts the highest number of sunshine hours of any town in the country, a feature that has made this region one of New Zealand's most important wine-producing areas.


Tauranga lies in the heart of the Bay of Plenty region, about 2.5 hours south of the city of Auckland. It has become one of New Zealand's fastest-growing areas thanks to plentiful sunshine and beautiful beaches. The densest concentration of attractions is on The Strand in the downtown area.


Auckland is by far New Zealand's largest and most cosmopolitan city. Called the "City of the Sails" because of its beautiful location between two harbors and great weather.

Bay of Islands

With its warm azure waters, golden beaches and some of the bluest skies on the planet, Bay of Islands is New Zealand's favorite holiday haven.


The whole world is in love with Sydney. It is stylish; it has sophistication; its home to some of the friendliest people on the planet and yes, a few koalas, if you know where to look. This gateway to the Outback has it all: endless outdoor adventure around the harbor or in spots like the Blue Mountains; countless museums; galleries and excellent restaurants where the dishes go way beyond the local Vegemite.
