Any of these 74 islands will leave you speechless as you swim, snorkel, eat & repeat along the blue shores.
Visit Bilbo and Frodo on the Hobbiton Movie set tour
No trip to New Zealand would be complete without a visit to the Shire. Situated in the heart of New Zealand, you can quite literally step into the Shire, say hi to Frodo and his mates and re-live a life on Middle Earth. With some added instagram opportunities of course.
Byron Bay is a must for every East Coast adventure. This coastal town is known for its scuba diving sites, beaches and all round chilled out vibes. And let’s not forget the surfing. Head to the likes of The Wreck, Main Beach, Clarke’s Beach, The Pass, Belongil Beach and Cosy Corner for the best surf spots this backpacker town has to offer.
After all these adventure experiences it’s likely you’ll be needing a drink or two. So, why not enjoy an afternoon in the Antarctic (a.k.a Queenstown), wearing Eskimo clothing of course. This unique experience will have you enjoying iced glass cocktail drinks whilst chilling in ice furniture, all at sub zero temperatures.
