New Zealand - When to go,  How long and Where...

 1994---scenic222 (1)You can experience the full four seasons in New Zealand, however, with a little twist…You Summer is our Winter, and our Winter is during your Summer. For example…Summer is during the Months of December, January and February .So if you are planning on visiting then, make sure you pack lightly…meaning you are packing your summer clothes!

Autumn is during the months of March, April and May. Yes I know, weird right? While Winter is in June, July and August, where the rest of the world are Hot! We are doing the opposite. Just like us driving on the left side.   Spring starts off in September, October and November.

New Zealand is just perfect for its variety of activities. New Zealand is built for you to be able to enjoy almost anything you do. Hiking, Walking, touring, cruising (cruises) Skiing, flying, anything you can really think of, while wining and dining at the worlds most exceptional award winning restaurants, or just coming to watch Rugby’s most popular team “The All Blacks” at Eden Park ,New Zealand’s Largest Rugby Venue .The ICC Cricket World Cup is happening this year, so 2015 will be a very busy year for New Zealand and Eden Park Bed and Breakfast.

Estimated Time Need To Tour New Zealand

nzmap

If you wanted to take a tour between the most popular destinations, Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch or Queenstown, then allow around 15 days of touring.

If you wanted to enjoy some activities and explore each destination, then add another 5 days to that. So you would need around 20 days to enjoy what New Zealand has to offer.

If you were looking for going from North Side to Southside…meaning, from one end of the island to the other end, you will need around 20 days or more to enjoy this tour and stay. So add another 7 days to hang out and explore Milford Sound, Kaikoura for some whale watching! , or the Coromandel and Bay of Islands. Make sure you pack a camera to enjoy the amazing scenery and golden beaches. Surfers are welcome too.

 

Where To Stay? 

We personally recommend you staying in Auckland. Auckland is where most of the activities are going on .qThis is where you can begin your tour. You may book and stay at Eden Park Bed and Breakfast Hotel , right in the heart of Auckland, next to Eden Park , the Biggest Rugby Venue in New Zealand. We have 4 themed luxury rooms for you to choose from . Just make sure you book early because this year will be a busy one (ICC Cricket World Cup 2015). www.bedandbreakfastnz.com

This weekend has seen activity such as NRL9 Rugby at Eden Park unseen since the #RWC 2011.
The NRL9 ‘s(nines) has been in town for two days. We have seen enthusiasm and costume colour that is a joy to behold. At Eden Park Bed and Breakfast , we have the FULL sign up and it’s 8 for breakfast.

INBOUND VISITOR ARRIVALS to 2nd February 2014
Total visitor arrivals are up 13% compared to the same four week period last year.

Down: Japan -5%

Are the Blues on a Roll

The BLUES win again.
In-front of a bumper 31,014 home crowd, this 34-15 victory was a step up from last week’s upset of the Hurricanes in Wellington. While Auckland’s population are a bit slack in passion towards sports teams it is obvious that they want to believe in this rugby team. I remember the poor attendance last year to their games. Last night there was an atmosphere in the crowds walking past Eden Park Bed and Breakfast that I haven’t seen since the RWC 2011.
And 5 try’s to zip says it all….
While it’s too early to say these rejuvenated Blues are the real deal – there is no doubt Sir John Kirwan, Graham Henry and co have modelled a unified, passionate group.Long may it continue. I am a great believer that a strong Auckland Rugby presence offers great value to New Zealand Rugby.
International Visitor Arrivals to 17th Feb 2013
Total visitor arrivals are up 6.3% compared to the same four week period last year.

Ups: Japan 11%, China 63%, Singapore 35%, Australia 1%, USA 8%, Canada 1%

IRB under 20's in Auckland

NEWS FLASH:

Eden Park will be the Host Stadium to the under-20s rugby world championship in 2014.
The International Rugby Board this morning announced that the annual IRB Junior World Championship will be held in Auckland in June 2014
The annual championship, which will see 11 countries playing it out for the top title, began in 2008 and has never been hosted in New Zealand.
Since 2008 New Zealand has won every year, except for this year when host country South Africa took out the top spot.
The Government has invested $1.45 million into the event, which has been matched by the Auckland Tourism Events and Economic Development.It is expected that the event will bring $8million in economic benefits to the city.
At Eden Park Bed and Breakfast , which is 250m from the stadium , I expect we will be having the same type of interest shown from the RWC 2011.
We welcome enquires from interested sports patrons . It’s better to be early than late for accommodation.

Eden Park Update

At Eden Park Bed and Breakfast , we are always in favour of increased activity at Eden Park Stadium , so i am upbeat about the Auckland council cost-cutting move that will see the Warriors make a permanent move to Eden Park .
Eden Park , the city’s largest stadium has often been touted as the Warriors future home, with the team having played their opening matches of the last two seasons there.
Bring the Games on!

Auckland's top Restaurants offer Terrific food, served with great charm and efficiency in a smart but probably somewhat informal atmosphere.
