Home to both Abel Tasmen National Park and the Nelson Lakes National Park, as well as Lake Rotoiti and Lake Rotoroa, a holiday in Nelson is a great way to get back to nature.


While Sydney is still the most popular Australian destination from Wellington Airport, passenger numbers on this route have been dropping in recent years as more routes have opened up more options for travellers. Those looking for something a bit different have instead been opting to fly to Brisbane, with Virgin Australia offering a direct flight to the Queensland capital. With year-round sunshine, Brisbane is particularly popular to visit in the chillier Wellington months.


Although it often feels like Australia is New Zealand's closest neighbour, it's actually quicker to fly from Wellington to Nadi. From there, you'll probably want to get a shuttle to the resorts around the coast, or make your way to the port and get a ferry to one of Fiji's numerous idyllic islands.
