If you only tend to explore the most popular city in the countries you’re visiting, you’re probably missing out on a lot of fun attractions. Most countries are home to countless beautiful cities apart from their biggest metropolis and that happens to be the case with New Zealand. Here are three charming towns in this country that you should explore after Auckland.


From rich history and culture to stunning nature and lively nightlife, New Zealand’s capital of Wellington has something in store for travelers from all walks of life. In addition to being home to many amazing attractions, it’s also a gateway to some of New Zealand’s biggest natural wonders thanks to its convenient waterfront location.


Christchurch went through a series of earthquakes in the early 2010s, but it was quickly rebuilt into one of New Zealand’s must-see cities. It’s best known for being a popular Antarctic gateway, but it’s also worth visiting for its beautiful beaches and natural beauty.


Speaking of natural wonders you can find in New Zealand, it doesn’t get any better than Queenstown. Its convenient location on the shores of Lake Wakatipu makes it one of the most scenic places in New Zealand and it’s extremely popular with fans of winter sports since it’s the country’s ski tourism hotspot.
