Information / Transport - back

For local knowledge of New Zealand attractions, visitor information centres or I-Sites are a great help.

There are over 100 listed in the database, so there is a good chance there is one near where you want to go. Even where a town does not have a visitor centre you will often find one by choosing 'Information/Transport' in your search where you will get a perspective on the locality and what might be of interest.

Travel Bookings

In larger centres you can make tour and travel bookings at I-Sites.

Local Activities

Visitor Information Centres are also good places to get descriptions of local walks and to find out if there are "must see" shows or other happenings on while you are in town.

Local Transport

The DayOut philosophy is that the planet-friendly thing to do is to make the most of what the immediate locality offers. This includes making use of public transport. For many attractions we provide links to local transport services. For the main cities on-line journey planners are available. They are:


To get airport information for any town enter the town name plus the word airport as a starting place in the DayOut "keyword search" box. (e.g Wellington airport) The search result will tell you what sort of air services the airport gets, how to travel to the city centre and the time it will take.

Hints: Use the town name plus the word airport in the search not the airport's official name. E.g "Wellington Airport" This saves having to know for example that the Timaru airport is known as the Richard Pearse airport.

We recommend you make advance bookings for your transports to and from New Zealand Airports.
