Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A country of contrasts, full of wilderness and unusual wildlife, New Zealand is an under-explored corner of Australasia.  This new addition to the Bradt wildlife series, illustrated with full-color photography throughout, offers the opportunity for visitors to discover curiosities such as New Zealands emblematic but shy Kiwi.

The national parks and tramping trails are essential ingredients and are covered in detail, allowing visitors to experience a range of dramatic scenery.  There is also a section on the locations famously used in the ‘Lord of the Rings trilogy of films.
