Enjoy eco-friendly camping with the kids on South Island in New Zealand! Imagine the kids roasting marshmallows over a blazing fire under the moon and stars and viewing wildlife that is not in a zoo. Stay in a cozy log cabin, luxury tent, or a chic yurt. The amenities range from luxury to basic but all rentals are family friendly. South Island is known for Queenstown, a town nestled at the base of mountains but also sits on Lake Wakatipu. The outdoor activities in the area are endless, year round. Another popular destination is Christchurch. It is the largest city in South Island. This would be an ideal location for history buffs and families. Christchurch has museums and The Orana Wildlife Park (an open range zoo ). Other unique offerings on the island include the "Lord of the Rings" excursion, boutique wineries, Fiord land National Park, helicopter tours, and boat cruises. After seeing the sights enjoy a relaxing day at the beach. Visit the infamous Moeraki Boulders on Koekehe Beach. Whichever level of adventure you are thirsting for, South Island will quench it.
