Being so close and like an errant state as some would claim, this is an ideal and economical destination to consider for a sports tour, providing a wide range of opportunities for sports groups to experience serious competition in outstanding locations.
* Field Hockey
* Rugby Union – who would have thought??
* Rugby League

New Zealand is well known for its Rugby – Union & League and Netball. It is less known for its ‘curling’ – think about the alpine south – and sand yachting! In reality most sports are played in New Zealand with the same fervour as here in Australia.
