    Warbirds, Wallis and Wānaka

    A spectacular biennial airshow, Warbirds over Wānaka showcases Second World War fighter aircraft and other unusual planes in the gorgeous surrounds of Wānaka. The show is the brainchild of aviator Tim Wallis, who pioneered live deer capture from helicopters in the 1960s and was dubbed 'Lord of the Choppers'.

    A long road over Haast Pass

    Once a walking track used by Māori heading for West Coast reserves of pounamu (greenstone), Haast Pass was first crossed by Europeans during the 1860s gold rushes. Construction of a proper road began in the 1920s and 1930s depression, with unemployed workers wielding picks and shovels – but the road wasn't completed until the early 1960s.

    Franz Josef and Fox glaciers

    Franz Josef and Fox glaciers

    The Franz Josef and Fox glaciers descend to unusually low altitudes, reaching into rainforest near the sea. In Māori tradition, Franz Josef is Kā Roimata o Hine Hukarere – the tears of Hine Hukarere, a young woman whose lover fell to his death there. Fox Glacier is the resting place of her lover, Tuawe.

    Ōkarito, home of the kōtuku

    New Zealand's largest unmodified wetland, Ōkarito Lagoon is home to a breeding colony of kōtuku (white herons).

    Gold fever in Hokitika

    Gold fever in Hokitika

    After gold was discovered in 1864 a lively town sprang up at Hokitika. Within a few months it had 5,000 residents and 72 hotels. However, its port was dangerous, and many ships met their end on the bar at the river mouth. When the gold rush finished, Hokitika dwindled – though since 1990 its Wildfoods Festival has been popular with daring eaters.
