#Blog4NZ: Video of photo safari to New Zealand’s South Island

Posted on March 20th, 2011 by Laura Byrne Paquet in Destinations, News

For the next few days, travel bloggers around the world are joining in a worldwide effort to raise awareness among travellers that–despite the tragic earthquake in Christchurch–most of New Zealand is undamaged and eager to welcome visitors. Here’s something to spark your imagination: a Tourism NZ video of a photo safari of the country’s jaw-dropping South Island, hosted by Australian TV celeb Jules Lund. This area is unaffected by the earthquake and open for business.

If you would like to donate to the recovery efforts in Christchurch, consider the New Zealand Red Cross.
