In 2020 Tourism New Zealand launched Do Something New New Zealand, a campaign designed to inspire Kiwis to step into the shoes of the international tourists who have been unable to visit due to COVID-19. A fresh set of KiwiStamps reflects this message with a focus on the joys of getting outdoors.
Single stamps in this issue are:
Bushwalking - Forget trains, planes and automobiles - New Zealanders know that their own two feet are the key to seeing the most beautiful parts of their own backyard. Follow a gentle track through Te Urewera National Park and in a little over an hour you’ll reach the shores of the pristine Lake Waikareiti.
Cycling - Getting outdoors is easy in the sunniest part of New Zealand, where residents and visitors enjoy hot summers and bright, clear winters. Cycle around the Tasman region and take in the surroundings between leisurely stops and the many attractions that await.
Kayaking - Gaze up at the sky-high waterfalls that tumble into the dark waters of Milford Sound, whose dramatic cliffs were hewn by ice-age glaciers. Exploring this unique piece of New Zealand by kayak will bring you close to dolphins, penguins and seals as you are immersed in serene scenery.
Skiing - Skiing is accessible in both the North Island and the South Island, with slopes suitable for beginners to seasoned skiers and snowboarders. You’ll find world-class ski schools, accommodation close to the ski fields and affordable options for families.
Road Trip - With a ferry or two in between you can travel the length of New Zealand by road. Make yourself at home at the idyllic holiday parks and campgrounds on the coast and on the edges of lakes or check out the freedom camping rules in the regions you want to visit.
