Kayaking to New Zealand.


Most of us arrive in New Zealand via plane but two Australians have decided to come by water. They are paddling the 2200 kilometer distance between Sydney and Auckland, hoping to become the first people to successfully kayak across.

James Castrission and Justin Jones left Sydney on November 13 and are about half way at present.

They hope to get to Auckland before Christmas but the weather might plan otherwise.

Apparently the winds have been pushing them back to Australia.

 You can follow their journey at Crossing the Ditch

Skywalk at Auckland’s Sky Tower.


Looking for adventure in the big city. Then Skywalk 360 might just be the thing for you. This new attraction at SkyCity lets you walk the rim of it’s famous pergola that sits 200 meters above the street. The only barrier between you and a 192 meter drop on either side is a harness and rope.

Doesn’t sound like a simple walk in the park. 

But if that isn’t enough adventure, then you can book a Sky Jump Compo that lets you end your walk by jumping of the tower…tied up, of course, in a bungy jump harness.
