There aren’t many places in the world where you can be hiking through lush rainforest in the morning, sunbathing on glorious golden sands at lunch, and seeing glacier-strewn mountains by evening!

Here's a list of things to do in New Zealand from someone lives there.  Which will you do?

Jump off Auckland’s Highest Building

Auckland is the biggest city in New Zealand and a perfect place to start this list. It’s about as picturesque as major cities get, with parks, viewpoints.
