"adventure" New Zealand Favorite Tip by joanj

New Zealand General: 375 reviews and 341 photos

  Jet Boat
by joanj

Favorite thing: jet boating down a gorge, overland in the mountains on a 4 x 4,.South Island, near to Milford Sound., and going to the top of the mountain in Queenstown, South Island, seeing the fantastic range of mountains surrounding the town, and watching hang gliders, and dry toboggan racers enjoying the outdoors.

The picture shows one of the jet boats passing us by before we set off for our adventure.

Fondest memory: My friend who lives there, I miss seeing her, my memory is of an uncrowded island/s friendly people, and the cost of living is low - unfortunately I believe the wages are too.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
