Come, Stay, Play in Golden Bay.

Golden Bay is nestled into the South Island's north-west corner. A land rich with spectacular scenery, golden beaches and the highest sunshine hours in the South Island.

Take an easy bush walk to Wainui Falls, sample handmade treats at Rosy Glow Chocolates in Collingwood and discover an abundance of birdlife on Farewell Spit. 

On the banks of the Anatoki River (pictured below), you'll find a must-do experience in New Zealand! 

At Anatoki Salmon experience the thrill of catching your own food. Come find a magical spot on Lake Anatoki to cast your line and land your lunch. And at Anatoki Tame Eels, you can relax, feed the tame eels (Hand-fed since 1914), enjoy the café and Petting Zoo.

“We were short of time but Nick listened to what we wanted to do and was able provide us with a fun filled & action packed few days. I loved the wine tasting we did in Lake Hayes at a boutique winery located in a tastefully renovated Woolshed – The Wet Jacket certainly know how to make great wine!  We can’t wait to plan our next Driver Guides NZ holiday – it was so easy and I didn’t need to organise a thing !!”  Michelle, NZ   http://www.facebook.com

 

“I had so much fun on the bike trails around the Lakes, the scenery was amazing. Gold panning in Arrowtown was really cool – I even got some gold!”

Dom, age 8

 

“Imagine a rainy day, sitting in front of a roaring fire sipping on a craft beer and eating incredible pizza! Nick organised just that for us at The Cow. This historic building in Queenstown used to be an old cow milking shed, it was full of character and great service. Brilliant few days, thanks Nick!” John, NZ
