About us


For the love of NZ

Backpackerguide.nz is the ultimate digital age guide to New Zealand. I’ve already used its advice to go explore remote volcanic islands and ski the best hidden slopes of the South Island. Simply put, do what it says and you’ll have the time of your life!

But enough about us, let’s talk about you. Whether you own a business and want to be known or are travelling around New Zealand and have a story to share, we want to hear what you have to say. So go on; what brings you to this page?
