Dive it, swim it, snorkel it, whatever you do – just get in the water! It doesn’t matter if you’re a qualified scuba diver or an absolute beginner, the Great Barrier Reef offers a huge range of amazing locations to dive or to learn.
Prefer to stay on top of the water? Island-hopping is always on the agenda. The Whitsundays – a string of 74 postcard-perfect islands – are perhaps the region’s best known. These idyllic islands, which include Hamilton, Daydream, Hook, Hayman, South Molle and Lindeman, offer excellent restaurants, stunning sailing expeditions and adventurous activities including skydiving.
These islands are sparsely populated, particularly away from the North Island, but easily accessible. There are sparklingly modern visitor facilities, and transport networks are well developed with Airports throughout the country and well maintained highways. New Zealand often adds an adventure twist to nature: it's the original home of jet-boating through shallow gorges, and bungy jumping off anything high enough to give a thrill.
Over the centuries, Kyoto was destroyed by many wars and fires, but due to its historic value, the city was dropped from the list of target cities for the atomic bomb and spared from air raids duringWorld War II. Countless temples, shrines and other historically priceless structures survive in the city today.
