NZers on holiday

New Zealanders on Holiday takes you on a trip through time and around New Zealand with snapshots of quintessential Kiwi holidays in support of the "Don’t Leave Home Until You’ve Seen the Country" exhibition at Auckland's Central City Library. Take in the Buller Gorge of 1910, 1950s Mount Maunganui, Nelson Lakes in 1963 and many more special holidays spots around the country.
