Gardens & Heritage Tours

New Zealand is a young country, but we're proud of the culture and history already established by our ancestors.

Maori cultural experiences, Art Deco tours, picturesque classical gardens, rambling cottage gardens and vistas of native plants offer a delight to the senses and deeper understanding of the diverse New Zealand experience.

Lodges of New Zealand bring together the varied influences upon the country with unique and authentic experiences, off the beaten track, to be enjoyed in tranquility.
