13 Awesome Sunset Locations In New Zealand

New Zealand has some awe-inspiring vistas, from the southern alps to glistening lakes, volcanos and sheep, lots of sheep, like looooooooooots of sheep. However, with a Maori name like Aotearoa, or Land of the Long White Cloud, it probably shouldn’t be surprising that those clouds lend themselves to some epic sunsets all around the country.

While our Royal Caribbean Alaskan cruise was stopped in Skagway we had the opportunity to hire a car at the local Avis and do some driving.

New Zealand North Island 32-Day Road Trip Itinerary + 10-Day Cruise

In September and October 2018, we did a 32-day road trip around the North Island of New Zealand followed by a 10-day cruise that brought us back to Australia via the South Island of New Zealand.

However, there are actually so many places to see and things to do here that are often overlooked. We could easily have spent longer here, and there are places I want to go back to and spend some more time in!
