New Zealand: An Insider's Look

New Zealand: An Insider's Look

This fact-filled journey across New Zealand offers viewers an insider's look at this fascinating country. We begin in Queenstown, which is located on the shores of Lake Wakatipu and overlooks New Zealand's Southern Alps, a popular destination known for its wide range of outdoor activities. Next stop is Christchurch, founded in 1850 as a Church of England colony; it is known as the most British city outside of Britain and is nicknamed the "Garden City." Lyttelton Harbor, Port Cooper, we discover is South Island's leading port; it is a natural harbor formed in the crater of an extinct volcano; also we see Port Hills, which separate Lyttelton Harbor from the city of Christchurch. Dunedin, situated on the southeastern coast of South Island, was founded in 1848 by Scottish immigrants and is called "The Scotland of New Zealand." Its premier landmark is Larnach Castle, the country's only castle. Originally built in 1871 by William Larnach, it is privately owned by the Barker family today and offers a vision of past and present times. Lastly to Rotorua, on the North Island, this spa and geyser city sits on top of the most thermal spots in the country and is the center of the Maori culture. 05/10DE IJSCA 30 min.
