Ideal for thrill seekers and nature lovers, New Zealand offers a wonderfully diverse natural landscape that has to be seen to be believed. The mountains, lakes and glaciers that dominate the country act as both brilliant destinations and stunning backdrops to some of the major towns and cities.
Hot springs and volcanoes are dotted throughout, with a range of dormant and active hotspots for visitors to explore. For those who want to do a little more than look at the environment, a huge range of extreme sports are on offering, including bungee jumping, canyoning, kite-surfing and ice-climbing, with much more spread out around the country.
It is against the law to stop or park on the right hand side of the road, with the exception of an emergency situation.
At an X intersection, traffic turning left has right of way; whereas at a T intersection, traffic turning right from the top of the T has right of way.
Stopping on the side of the motorway for any reason other than an emergency is illegal and is likely to result in a fine.
