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


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).

Eden Park Room Showcase New


Eden Park Bed and Breakfast accommodation is known, for our high standards, friendly ambience, location, character and facilities. Eden Park recieved multiple awards through out the past 4 years…voted and awarded the “Traveller’s Choice Awards” by Trip Advisor. Or you may choose to stay in a Hotel, Motel, or a Self Catering Accommodation (basically an apartment to rent.

New Tourism Venture For Auckland

Great news in Auckland as the announcement that the ship Ipipiri, which has 30 cabins will be permanently based in the Viaduct Harbor. A new tourism venture for Auckland.

The catamaran Ipipiri is New Zealand’s largest permanently-based cruise ship and the Auckland-based cruise business was launched today.

It will be able to cater cocktail events for up to 100 people and has restaurant seating for up to 80.

The vessel has offers 30 ocean view cabins, complete with en suites and will offer day and overnight cruises in the vicinity of Waiheke Island .

• Length: 44.5m
• Width: 13m
• Height: 11m
• Hull depth: 1.4m
• Decks: 4
• Cabins: 30 ocean view rooms with en suites

I personally think this is brilliant for the Tourism Industry.

At Eden Park Bed and Breakfast we are involved in the accommodation sector. We promote activities and tours to guests traveling within Auckland and New Zealand.

To be able to offer another activity that keeps travelers within Auckland offers spin offs to other tourism operators . We may even have to go out for a trip ourselves when the time allows ……

Domestic Tourism Gains

Although we all would like to be in the warmth of the Pacific at this time of the year it seems Kiwis are spending their holidays close to home and have contributed to the highest domestic tourism figures in the last eight years.
Domestic travellers spent $9.95 billion in the year to March 2012. That’s an 11 percent increase on the previous 12 month period.
Even adjusted for inflation, the domestic tourism spend is the second highest ever, behind a mini-boom in 2002 and 2003. The main drivers behind the increase were business trips and visits to friends and relatives.
We personally have seen an increase with domestic travelers at Eden Park Bed and Breakfast in Auckland, New Zealand. The VFR segment has been noticeable with guests staying 3-4 days.
If only we could have a Rugby World Cup in New Zealand every year. Wouldn’t that be nice……..

Stunning Photo from the Ocean

There are some photos that take your breath away. This photo from Hawaii is UNBELIEVABLE.
A bottlenose dolphin is captured on film hitching a ride on the nose of a humpback.
Remarkable images were captured in two locations in Hawaiian waters of whales lifting dolphins out of the water with their heads, and then the dolphins sliding back down.
The two species seemed to co-operate in the activity, and neither displayed signs of aggression .
Whales and dolphins in Hawaiian waters often interact, but playful social activity such as this was extremely rare between species.We can only hope that such sights will one day be seen in New Zealand waters. I might have to cease being #2 at Eden Park Bed and Breakfast and become a seafarer again !


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

Brief overview of upcoming events in Auckland City

A short walk from Eden Park makes us the perfect destination for all their sporting fixtures.
