Explore the best bits of Gisborne
This city boasts of being one of the first in the world to watch the sun rise everyday. We all know that the sun rises in the east, right? You can find Gisborne on the east coast of the Eastland region and it's one of the brightest and cheeriest places in the country.
With your rental car you can experience the ultimate summer destination in New Zealand. Gisborne hosts the Rhythm & Vines Festival which is held over three days. A popular place to spend New Years Eve, you may just sit in your rental car and watch the rising of the New Year's sun across the vines while sipping a glass of wine and enjoying some of the world's best rock, blues, roots and dance music over four stages.
Gisborne is the perfect summer escape with some of New Zealand's best surfing beaches with white sand and perfect weather. Take a twilight horse ride and gallop along the beach as the sun sets on another perfect summer's day, there are several trek operators in the region.
Captain Cook's Landing Site
Captain Cook's Landing Site commemorates the first Europeans arriving in New Zealand. There stand granite monuments of Captain James Cook and Nicholas Young, members of the crew that first sighted this land.
From here, you can go to Titirangi Domain, Kaiti Hill to get the best view of the white cliffs of Young Nick's head. Ride up from Ranfurly Street to stop at the various lookouts or save gas and take the walkways to enjoy the picnic places and the resident trees.
Cook Memorial Observatory
While you're still in Titirangi, you can drop by the Cook Memorial Observatory. The observatory's prominently dubbed as the most easterly observatory in the world and it has three telescopes that are free to use to get a closer look at the night sky. Visit in the evening when the sky and the stars are at their best and most beautiful. It'll be such an experience, scoping outer space!
Your next destination has to be Tairawhiti Museum because it's one of New Zealand's best! The museum and gallery offer Kiwi contemporary art exhibitions, successfully holding Maori cultural festivals. It's a brilliant place to get a taste of New Zealand's culture, heritage and history.
