Favourite summer holiday spots

Lorna Thornber Reporter from Stuff Travel

Hi everyone,
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 Please put 'NFP' (not for publication) in your comment if you don't want it to appear in a travel article.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.

The council has budgeted $8m for repairs in 2032. It is clear, however, that the work needs to be done before then.
The council is expecting a new report soon on what the options are.
Former city councillor and council critic Max Shierlaw has already called for an “honest” debate on the future of the wharf.
“The Petone wharf is a luxury that no longer can be afforded or justified.”
