My dear readers, today I want to share something different with you.
I will be writing about the many features that one should know about why you should visit New Zealand and why it is a good place to go on a vacation with the family. The remote and less populated places have a ton of amazing scenery, wonderful culture-deep festivals, unique food and drinks as well as its fantastic outdoor experiences. This is one of the countries in the world today that are proud to celebrate their indigenous people which are the Maori. Many of its festivals are actually based on these people and the locals today respect their culture among anything else.
New Zealand is known to harbor a lot of overseas visitors in a year where they eat, drink and experience its wonderful views and amenities. The country has seen much increase in its tourism over the years as more and more people come to the place. Seeing that there is always going to be many tourists coming over throughout the year, the Department of Conservation (DOC) has started applying a booking system for NZ’s Great Walks. This is done to avoid the crowding in areas and to give every visitor a chance to enjoy the natural scenery and amenities.
Embracing much of things that are eco-friendly, its regional dining restaurants and farmer markets sell local products to their buyers. This is to ensure that the environmental damage to the area is minimized as much as possible. The act is going to help save its natural scenery as well as its flora and fauna.
For people who are interested in seeing the area’s natural wildlife, one can visit the Karori Wildlife Sanctuary which is essentially where many of New Zealand’s unique wildlife are kept in preservation. Visitors in Wellington should not miss this place as it is a forest area that is being restored to its natural beauty. The sanctuary is where the pest-exclusion fence is being used effectively as an ecological island which allows its natural habitat and ecosystems to thrive. Seeing that many animal species have been introduced in New Zealand, the locals have set this up to minimize the pressure it brings.
The Karori Sanctuary has been a significant tourist attraction for the visitors that go to Wellington as well as their local residents. This is because an increased number of tui and kaka sightings have been experienced in the city’s suburbs. It has also been an inspiration to people who have started creating similar projects throughout NZ. These parks have predator-proof fences that are now able to protect the biodiversity of its other forests areas. One example is the 98-hectare of the Bushy Park in Whanganui.
Speaking of this, there is also the Maungatautari Restoration Project which is New Zealand’s largest ecological restoration projects that is located near Cambridge in the Waikato region. The project aims to provide a non-nnative pest mammals and predators removal in the area to restore its endangered native flora and fauna. Even if this is so, the masterminds of this plan have no intention of restricting introduced birds. However, efforts will be made to control the non-native wasps that migrate.
Visiting New Zealand offers many things to the first time visitor. Aside from the local scenery such as the cabbage trees, there are also restaurants that provide the cultural food that attracts many groups all over again. Families can spend their time here bonding as they discover the features the wildlife sanctuaries have. The place also offers a quiet and romantic time with a lover. Many couples celebrate their wedding anniversaries there and even a lot more take their vows with the ones they love in New Zealand.
So what are you waiting for? It is time to visit New Zealand!
