New Zealand scenery has long been a major tourist attraction, so spectacular it leaves many lost for words. You need to see it to understand, just describing it is not enough. Mind you, if you have seen some recent movies that were made in New Zealand, you probably have seen it and not realized. Those spectacular scenery in the Lord of the Rings trilogy is of New Zealand landscapes.

Selected highlights are:

  • Fiordland and Milford Sound - they built the road here, including a tunnel under the mountains, just for the tourists.
  • Queenstown on the shores of Lake Wakatipu and with the other Southern Lakes in easy reach.
  • Franz Josef and Fox Glaciers - in the Westland region.
  • Mount Cook - New Zealand's highest mountain, in the heart of the Southern Alps.
  • The Canterbury plains.
  • Mount Ruapehu and Lake Taupo - volcanoes with lakes in them.
  • White Island, one of New Zealand's more active volcanoes.
  • Bay of Islands, where the Waitangi treaty house can be found and the place where New Zealand's founding document, the Treaty of Waitangi, was signed. The copies are now held by the Archives New Zealand in Wellington.
  • Ninety Mile Beach
  • New Zealand Webcam
