New Zealand is an excellent location for
enjoying many outdoor activities. The main centers are in Queenstown,
Wanaka, and Waitomo on the North Island.
New Zealand's clear blue waters have much
to offer and not surprisingly, the country has more divers per head of
population than anywhere else in the world. Many shipwrecks are found
at the bottom of Marlborough Sounds, among other places. It is best to
go from January to April when the water temperatures on the east coast
of the Northern Island average 21°C.
