New Zealand’s South Island Travel Trail breathtaking beauty you can experience on your kiwi holiday

Some of the most amazing places in the world are off the beaten track, one of the the things I loved so much about the Travel Showcase we recently took a tour on with our team from Christchurch to Lake Tekapo, along the trail to Mount Cook National Park, Twizel, Omarama and Queenstown was all the little spots we found along the way, so many different environments but yet so close together along the drive.

Check out some of our favourite spots in this photo snapshot blog
