A selection of photo's of trips around New Zealand.

Photos from New Zealand

The amazing thing about New Zealand is that in 50 years it will STILL be as wild, untouched and beautiful as it is now.


The South Island of New Zealand has some of the most spectacular scenery and features in the world.

With a population of only 800,000 clustered together in about 5 major cities and towns, much of the countryside is still wild and untamed, and as described by our Prime Minister, the population of the West Coast is feral.

It takes about 10 hours of driving to cover the length of the island, and about 3 hours for the width. In that space there are mountains, glaciers, fiords, golden beaches, and everything from alpine plants to semi tropical flora.

These are some of the places we have visited during breaks in work.  Most are in the South Island of New Zealand, and are taken on a Canon G3 digital camera.

Most photo's are landscapes, as they are the most distinguishing features of New Zealand.  There is a map of the South Island showing the places in the photos below this list.

Some of the older pages don't have a commentary. Unfortunately it was lost during a crash and I have never got around to rewriting it again. However if you have any questions about the places please feel free to contact me here
