Sorry, no festivals here.
New Zealand may be well known for movies about rings and sheep, but Kiwis will tell you that there’s much more to the island country than that. For example, Wanderlust has one of its healing retreats at Lake Tuapo, a body of water sitting in the caldera of a long-inactive volcano. The native Maori people long appreciated the mystic beauty and powers the lake has. If you’re looking to groove to music and party, Auckland City Limits is a recent development that emulates Austin City Limits. New Zealand’s stunning beauty and budding festival scene mark it as an all encompassing festival destination.
