How affordable is travel within NZ?

Lorna Thornber Reporter from Stuff Travel

Hi everyone, I'm Lorna, a Stuff travel reporter. We're doing a story on how affordable travel within NZ is. For those of you who have travelled within the country post-lockdown, we'd like to hear whether you've been able to find suitable flights, accommodation and activities within your budget. Do you think accommodation providers and tourism operators are doing enough to entice New Zealanders to explore their backyard? Please let us know in the comments below, your message may be used in our story.

75th Anniversary of the End of the Second World War

Ministry of Culture & Heritage

This year, New Zealand will commemorate the 75th anniversary of the end of the Second World War on 15 August 2020.

This date marks the historic anniversary of the surrender by Japan, which represented the end of the War in Asia and the Pacific and the culmination of six long years of war across the rest of the world.

The public is invited to attend the national commemorative service, which will take place at 1pm on Saturday 15 August at Pukeahu National War Memorial Park. We recommend arriving by 12.45pm.

The service will also be live streamed. More information is available on the Ministry for Culture and Heritage website.
