When you rent a Spaceship campervan to travel around New Zealand, you get access to a huge number of great deals and discounts on activities and places to stay around the country. If you're 55 and older, there's another discount, and students can get one free day when hiring a Spaceship for two weeks or longer.
Besides all the cool inclusions in your Spaceship, there's a practical and witty guidebook written by a past traveller who states, “Don't travel the North Island without this guide, otherwise you'll probably miss out on the exact stuff that you've come half way around the world to experience.”
Rainbow Tourism Recommendations: Spaceships has pickup points in Auckland and your can drive across the North Island and onto Wellington and back. Just in case you need a break away from camping, or before/after your self-drive tour, there are several gay-owned homestays, and gay-welcoming motels, boutique hotels and resorts around the country. Check out RainbowTourism.com then book your Spaceship here.
Auckland is New Zealand’s largest city by a long way. Of the nation’s 4 million population over a third make Auckland their home. It is estimated that one in four Aucklanders owns a boat and it is because of this and that there are more boats per capita here than anywhere else, that Auckland is known as the ‘City of Sails’.
Wellington is the third largest city and since 1865 has been the capital and home of the New Zealand Government. The “Windy City” is hosting the 2nd Asia Pacific Outgames - a major international gay and lesbian sport, culture and human rights event - from 12 to 19 March 2011. This would be a great time to visit, although the new gay vibe can be felt year-round in this breathtakingly beautiful city.
