Marvellous Mother's Day Destinations
Bay of Islands
Whether you're a devoted spouse or contending for the top spot of favourite child, we've got the best destinations to surprise Mum with, on this 2015 Mother's Day.
Our first destination is in the far north of New Zealand and will please the adventurous mother or even Mums who want a relaxing getaway. Just a short 240 km trip in your rental car from Auckland is the beautiful Bay of Islands. Take a ferry trip, swim with the dolphins or visit The Hole In The Rock. There are plenty of fun filled or relaxing activities to indulge in. The Bay of Islands Country Rock Festival will also be held over the entire Mother's Day weekend to provide Mum with that extra bit of entertainment.
If it's fun and excitement she enjoys, a night or two in Auckland should be just what she needs. She'll be able to put on her dancing shoes, let her hair down and dance the night away in the City of Sails. If dancing isn't Mum's favourite pastime, there's plenty of other ways to entertain her, either fun at the casino or food at one of the amazing restaurants along the waterfront.
If neither of those destinations suit your Mum, then I'm sure our final one will. Located at the top of the South Island is the Marlborough region. Most popular for its world-renowned wine and award-winning vineyards, Mum will treasure the wine tasting experience she's being treated to. A tour of vineyards throughout the area can be taken by bus, or for a more unique experience, by bicycle.
Mum will be sure to boast about her marvellous Mother's Day getaway with any of these amazing New Zealand destinations. Do you have a suggestion for a great Mother's Day road trip? Let us know in the comments box below.
