Having travelled extensively around New Zealand I saw the need for a website that was totally focused and dedicated solely to the best tourist activities that New Zealand has to offer from the relaxed to the extreme. A website that was not cluttered and combined with irrelevant other products that could distract visitors from the site. Yet this website can still be used as a promotional tool and can be utilised by accommodation providers which showcases all the things to do within their region of New Zealand.
I have used the resources of John Watkinson of ‘Action Adventure Videos’ who owns an extensive stock footage library of both regional and tourism activity product throughout New Zealand. which has been a huge asset to this website.
John has a vast knowledge of the tourism industry in New Zealand having been involved for over 29 years as an accommodation provider and tourism operator.
