The Tongariro Crossing (often mentioned, but true).
The Taupo and Rotorua thermal area - a reminder of the planet we live on - fascinating.
The Coromandel, the east coast is the best.
Te Papa Museum and the waterfront in Wellington.
Abel Tasman National Park in Nelson, perfect coastal walking, views and beaches.
Drive (and explore) the West Coast of the South Island between Punakaiki down pas the glaciers (Franz Josef and Fox) and through the Haast Pass to Wanaka, the most beautiful drive in the country.
The Routeburn Track, either private huts and guided or unguided in public huts - both versions are superb.
The Hollyford Track, also in Fiordland, a magnificent river valley hike out to the wild Martin's Bay.
The Central Otago Rail Trail - good biking, quaint historic villages and friendly pubs.
Stewart Island - the best bird life in the country and some of the loveliest (cold) beaches - see Mason's Bay.
