Friday The tour starts when we pick you up at your door (all inclusive package only) for the short coach transfer to Hamilton to catch our Air New Zealand afternoon flight south to Wellington, where after the short transfer to our harbourside hotel you may choose to head out on a pre dinner stroll along the picturesque waterfront, or just relax before we dine together at the hotel this evening. Those on the "'Go As You Please"  option are free to plan their flights from any airport and arrange a transfer in Wellington on arrival. You will also be able to plan your dinning options as you wish.

 

Saturday After breakfast at the hotel, we are all transferred to New Zealand’s national museum – Te Papa Tongarewa. We will have the morning to explore this phenomenal facility – packed with treasures and stories from New Zealand’s past. A guided tour is included with one of Te Papa’s knowledgeable staff, where we will learn even more about the secrets of the museum’s collection.

 

Also included is of course a private tour of the World of Wearable Art – Up Close exhibition. Featuring over 35 award-winning garments, this immersive exhibition will be sure to ‘wow’ you. The creativity of the designs is really something to behold, and we are promised a ‘theatrical journey’ as you explore the displays.

 

For those of you on our  Go As You Please option, the afternoon is yours to explore Wellington city. You may want to hit the shops on Lambton Quay, wander the sunny waterfront, or sample some of the local gastronomic delights in one of the many world-class establishments. You are free to make your own choices for dinner tonight.

 

For those on the all-inclusive package we have a guided tour of the city to look forward to in the afternoon. Full of hidden gems, we will explore some of the less travelled parts of the city. From the 360 degree views from Mt Victoria, to the rocky shoreline around the southern suburbs, we hope to see plenty of our capital city. We visit Miramar, known locally as ‘Wellywood’ – home of New Zealand’s growing international film industry. After our scenic trip we will be dropped off back at our hotel in good time to relax, enjoy the views and get ready for dinner this evening at the hotel restaurant.

 

Sunday The next day we are up early and off home on one of New Zealand’s fantastic scenic rail journeys – the Northern Explorer. We will enjoy breakfast on this world-class rail trip, which takes in the scenic Kapiti Coast before heading through the rugged farmland of the North Island. There’s scenic viaducts to traverse in the Rangitikei district, before climbing up to the central plateau which is home to 3 magnificent volcanic cones. Sit back and relax in the comfortable seats and large panoramic windows as you travel the historic Raurimu Spiral – an impressive feat of engineering.

As we cross through the King Country there is plenty to see from the rugged landscapes to well tended dairy farms of the Waikato, before disembarking at Hamilton station. Here, the Hinterland Tours team will meet you for the transfer back home to Tauranga. For those of you on our all-inclusive package you will be dropped safely at your door, having enjoyed a wonderful break away. For those on the "Go as you please" option we can transfer you to Hamilton or Tauranga Airport if you have vehicles there.
