Useful guidebooks and other sources of info

I am looking for some good guidebooks and websites to plan a trip to New Zealand. Since there seems to be an overwhelming number I am hoping for some ideas on whittling the options down.

We mostly used Lonely Planet for reference on our previous trip.

Newzealand.com is good for finding out about the different regions.

This year I bought a great book on Amazon called Touring the Natural Wonders of New Zealand by Peter Janssen.It has 45 different area routes for travelling by car.

I found this site really helpful when we first started planning.


The internet is a great source of information as is Trip Advisor.

We also used the DK Eyewitness Travel Guide.


Enjoy planning!
