We'd be keen to hear about your favourite summer holiday spots in NZ. Is there somewhere you keep returning to year after year and, if so, what are the main attractions? What makes it such a stand-out spot? Any tips you may be able to offer on the best things to see and do there - as well as the best places to grab a drink or bite to eat - would be much appreciated. Please put 'NFP' (not for publication) in your comment if you don't want it to appear in a travel article. Thanks again.
These new arrivals to Tiritiri Matangi Island are now one month old.
The Takahe chicks are growing quickly and thriving.
The feathered friends tend to stick close to the adults or hide under thicker vegetation.
But they are getting braver so some visitors may have the chance to spot them.
Visitors to the wildlife sanctuary north east of Auckland are asked to give the birds plenty of space and to avoid walking between adults and chicks.
