Time Out Melbourne

Looking for an escape across the ditch? Time Out reveals four great getaways that won’t break the bank


Back in the mid-1990s it wasn’t our favourite place to visit, but Auckland has come a long way over the past 15 years to be New Zealand’s most-happening city.


New Zealand’s largest university town, Dunedin’s architecture, rugged coastline and heritage gives you the feeling that you could be in northern Scotland.


The adventure capital of the Southern Hemisphere, Queenstown originally started to gain noriety in the late 1970s and early 1980s as a ski town in the most picturesque setting.


It’s probably a good thing that Wellington hasn’t been the most popular city for Aussies visiting NZ, because otherwise real treasures would have been uncovered too long ago.
