    Northland with 2 preschoolers!
    In September we will take a dream holiday around Northland and the Bay of Islands. We have a 4 year old daughter and 2 year old son - not sure if we're mad! We've always wanted to see the beautiful tip of the North Island, but it seemed so expensive and far away since we live in Christchurch! My husband has been doing his MBA part time for the past 2.5 years (he started just before our youngest child was...

    Kiwi's Cheapa Campas
    In January 2011 we hired a 6 birth and travelled around the Land of the long white Cloud.  To be able to pull up and camp at convenient places and have all the mod cons of a "Cheapa" was a fabulous experience for us. We had a VW and it was not only great but economical and beautiful to drive. With the shower for each of the four of us it was almost heavenly comfortable and we were able to traverse...

    My dream
    We have been planning this family holiday to New Zealand for what feels like forever. I know I've been saving for 3 years. The idea of seeing New Zealand from the convience of a motor home seems like a great idea. It's a mode of transport we have never been in before so what an absolute adventure. Phill and I will be able to sit up the front and have some grown up time. We can strap the kids in the...

    Cape York
    We hired an Apollo 4wd vehicle to tour up to Cape York.Our holiday was a wonderful adventure with the Apollo supplying all the comforts that we needed for such a trip. Cooking was done outside on the table which was on the vehicle. The balmy nights complimented our outside cooking  allowing us to watch the evening sunsets in this unique part of Australia.We would highly recommend these vwhicles for such a holiday.

    6 Friends, 1 CHEAPA CAMPA, and plenty of adventure!!!
    Well I can now say that I've slept in a campervan.  It wasn't the worst night of sleep but I've definitely had better.  Lindsey and I slept in the back bed, Cameron and Caitlin snuggled on the side bed, and Chris and Trenton got the "pent house", the bed that is above the front of the car. We were all exhausted so it was a little difficult to wake up but we managed.  I definitely wasn't expecting it to get so cold...

    To the South Island
    My dream holiday is to spend sometime in Central Otago to complete the Central Otago Rail Trail and then to move on the Milford to walk the Milford track. If time allowed I would also like to explore the Caples and Greenstone tracks also. I would like to travel by a freedom campervan so that we can stop at as many place as possible on the way and explore each place by MTB.

    Roaaad Trip!!
    I would absolutely love to do a full New Zealand Road trip with my family! However the kiddies are still probably a bit young for that so my next best would be to do the North Island, and then the South Island another time. Our country is so super beautiful it would be nice to be able to show them how lucky they are to live where they do.

    South Island Summer
    I'm from Christchurch and would love to take my husband and two boys on a holiday through the South Island. Exploring the wineries of Blenheim, the artistic haven and beauty of Nelson and surrounds, the nightlife in Dunedin, Orana Park and Willowbank in Christchurch to the natural beauty of Queenstown it would be the trip of a lifetime!

    Our holiday dream came true in New Zealand
    Our holiday dream came true in New Zealand   We /me, my wife and our 8 years daughter / started our NZ holiday in Christchurch. First goal was Lake Tekapo, we went through Darfield and beautiful hilly landscape of Canterbury. Almost no traffic. This first day drive it was a little fight with different car driving and different trafic rules. Lake Tekapo was beautiful, there we visited little church with breathtaking view from altar window.Next day - Lake Pukaki, having perfect weather, could have...

    10 Days in the beautiful New Zealand's South Island
    It is true what they say about New Zealand: “The world in one Country”. As European I have seen a lot of countries especially in Europe but also outside, but what amazed me the most was how much scenery of all those different countries you see back in New Zealand, it’s just amazing! Our journey started in Christchurch where we picked up our motor home. We had chosen for Cheapa Campa ( , mainly because the good price-value. The pick-up...
