Discussing :: Winter Holiday Destinations


Queens town... all the exhilaration, ski and hot tubs


My favorite's would be either Fiji or Rarotonga or Tonga for a cheap winter get away!

Our winter fits in perfectly with the Humpback whale migration to Tonga for calving. Once you arrive in Tonga its a relatively short hop out to Vavau or Haapi. Both of these islands are magical. A day spent out on the water with Endangered Encounters is fantastic. If the whales are in a receptive mood and the waters are calm the chance to swim with them is offered.
Fiji, offers warmth and beautiful islands. The mainland is ok with Denerau or Pacific Harbor been some of the favored destination's on the mainland but for me i prefer to head out to the Mamanuca or Yasawa island groups. The snorkeling becomes better as you travel north towards the Yasawa group. If you time it right you can swim with the Mantra Rays in the Yasawa Group. Magical!

Rarotonga, although more expensive than Tonga and Fiji is perfect. Forty minutes to travel around the island on scooter and alright snorkeling straight off the beach from the majority of the resorts!
Take me back!


i am not one for overseas travel, but i would love to go to Taupo, it is such a pretty place, close to the ski fields, the beautiful lake, lots of shops,places to dine, it has very special memories for me and was the first place we resided in when we arrived from scotland,it has changed a lot since then, and a place that is always dear to my heart, it has everything on offer for a great relaxing and enjoyable holiday.


whats wrong with the snow!

South Island all the way.


Rarotonga is a great winter destination. Short flight, beautiful beaches and they use NZ$ so no currency exchange required!


Gotta go with Tonga as above. Was there in late May so just missed out on the whale coupling. we were in a prime spot too just on the beach.


Any holiday would be great, who cares about the weather!!!


To visit Venice in our winter would be fantastic


Is Phuket, the food is amazing, the people are great! & it costs so little


Can't go past Tokoriki in Fiji.Water temperture sits around 30 degrees most of the time.Go on pamper yourself.
