What’s the Big Deal?

Deals, offers, free stuff & suggested itineraries.

Backpackers tend to be pretty good at spotting bargains and looking for hot deals and why not? The more money in your back pocket the more you have to spend on those big ticket memories.

Head into the i-Site and ask the friendly staff about the free activities and attraction on offer in the region. From soaking in geothermally heated pools to walking through native New Zealand bush, we can stretch your dollar and show you an unforgettable time all in one. Better yet, download the Free Things to Do Brochure. 

Check out what's on offer for under $50 and when the weather turns nasty and the rain begins to fall make sure you don't waste the day, there's still plenty to get out of bed for when things look a bit soggy.

We've suggested a few one, three and five day intineraries if you really want a low fuss visit. Check out our suggestions and get planning.
