Day 5: After you've visited the Museum of New Zealand go to Zealandia: The Karori Sanctuary Experience. It is a sanctuary for native birds. Zealandia has many interesting exhibits that teach you about the native birds. They also have an exhibit that takes you back 1,000 years before people arrived in New Zealand. It shows you the many different species and how the humans impacted them. Zealandia is a must see.


Day 6: If you travel down to South Island you should go to Christchurch and visit Lancaster Park/AMI Stadium. This stadium is the home to the New Zealand Rugby team the ALL BLACKS. If you visit here you'll find yourself enthralled in the sports. However it does not only hold Rugby but also cricket and other sports. This Stadium will blow your mind.


Day 7: Finish off your trip with a visit to Westland National Park. It has loads of beautiful awe- inspiring glaciers including Fox Glacier and the Franz Josef as well. For those adventurous hikers they can hike the glaciers and marvel at the view and beauty. But for those a little less confident are some beautiful back country walks. Also Westland is a great place to bird watch as well. Westland National Park is a great spot for nature lovers.
