Napier Art Deco Festival

A panoramic view of the pristine nature. A place where you can get life shots like a photo shoot no matter where you are. New Zealand is one of the most beautiful travel destinations in the world. It’s not just the natural scenery that’s great. From Art Deco architecture festivals to quirky themed museums to free-running coastal roads, there are countless exotic destinations that catch the eye with bold colors and colorful sights. For travelers looking for a bit of a unique destination in addition to the picturesque natural scenery, we go on a LAN trip along the ‘Secret New Zealand – Unique Destination’ introduced by the New Zealand Tourism Board.

Art Deco Festival

#Hawks Bay, a wine town full of artistic sensibility

Even in New Zealand, many people think of wine when they think of Hawk’s Bay. A home to great grape varieties, Hawke’s Bay is also known for its beautiful Art Deco architecture. In particular, the ‘Napier’ area is densely populated with Art Deco-style architecture, which is ranked as one of the world’s best. To commemorate this, the annual ‘Art Deco Festival Napier’ is held here. Vintage cars line the streets with stunning architecture in the background, and you can enjoy the city’s festivities with the driver, also dressed in Art Deco style.

In Pukekura Park, which is also located in the city center, various art sculptures such as the ‘Festival of Light’ are newly presented every year. It will be fun to take a walk while viewing the exhibits that reflect the characteristics of the region, including Mount Taranaki.

Dick This Invercargill

#A unique attraction in an idyllic landscape, Invercargill

Invercargill is a city in Southland, the southernmost tip of New Zealand. It has a natural environment as there are relatively few people, and it is a town where you can properly experience the sensibility of a secluded travel destination. Invercargill is somewhat at odds with this typical yet idyllic New Zealand landscape. This is because there are many tourist attractions with themes related to transportation vehicles. First of all, at ‘Dig This Invercargill’, where people of all ages can experience a variety of heavy equipment, you can directly ride on vehicles such as bulldozers and fork cranes that you could only encounter at rough construction sites and even have a simple experience. There is even a mini experience for children, so there is no driver’s license or age limit, so it’s very popular with families.

Bill Richardson Transport World

‘Bill Richardson Transport World’, which houses one of the world’s best collections of vintage trucks and classic cars, is also a tourist attraction not to be missed by car enthusiasts. More than 300 vintage vehicles from the early 20th century, including Ford Lettercar and Volkswagen Combi, as well as the Dodge Airflow Texaco Tanker, can be seen.

#Tairahuiti, a place where you can experience unique nature

Tairawhiti in Eastland is located on the easternmost tip of New Zealand’s North Island. Also known as Gisborne, its geographical location makes it one of New Zealand’s best places to watch the sunrise. ‘Maunga Hikurangi’, which is considered a sacred mountain for the Natirorou people, a Maori tribe, is known as the place where the sun rises first in the world.

Here, you can also experience a unique experience where you can directly feed and come in contact with rare marine creatures, including rays. At the local company ‘Dive Tatapouri’, you can dip your feet in the sea and observe the stingrays that live in the coral reef area. An expert guide will accompany you and provide detailed information about marine life and the local natural environment.

#Meeting rare nature and unique festivals, Waitaki

Waitaki is one of New Zealand’s rarest and most beautiful natural attractions. ‘Waitaki Whitestone Geopark’, designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is the most striking place in Waitaki, where the coast, plains and rough peaks inhabited by rare penguins coexist. In particular, the trekking course of the Clay Cliff formed by the rather bizarre terrain is very popular.

Waitaki is also the stage for the ‘Steampunk festival’ held in New Zealand. Steampunk, which may be a rather unfamiliar concept, is one of the cultural genres that witty twisted 19th century Victorian England with a futuristic and sci-fi imagination. have. From clothes to transportation, you can experience and view various items with steampunk-inspired inspiration.
