Kelly Tarlton's Antarctic Adventure and Underwater World

At the time of our visit this was, quite simply, Kelly Tarlton's Underwater World. It has since been expanded with the Antarctic Adventure bringing penguins into the venue.

Obviously I can only comment on the Underwater World which was a fantastic experience and a great final event on our 1991 New Zealand trip.

The video below has some footage taken at the time.

One Tree Hill for unbeatable views over Auckland

One Tree Hill Auckland New Zealand 1991Unsurprisingly it's called One Tree Hill because it only has one tree!

It is also an important memorial for both Maoris and indeed all New Zealanders.

If Auckland is to be your gateway to going home then this is the place to take those last minute scenic shots from.

edit: I have since discovered that One Tree Hill is now, in fact, No Tree Hill after several attacks on the tree including one with a chainsaw - how very sad.

The memorial of course still remains as do the beautiful views

Historic Village Tauranga

Tauranga New Zealand Historic Village quiet street view 1991This is a wonderful place.

If a piece of New Zealand nostalgia interests you then the Historic Village in Tauranga can offer you this by the bucket load.

Old buildings, vintage vehicles, vintage goods and artifacts, steam trains, diesel trains and more. If you can spare the time this attraction could keep you occupied for hours
