New Zealand’s Most Instagram-Worthy Locations

New Zealand’s Most Instagram-Worthy Locations

Written by Kimberly

Hire a campervan in New Zealand, hit the road and snap some of the most instagram-worthy photos on your journey. We know that it can be hard to single out just a few locations, so here are our suggestions for some of the most beautiful places in New Zealand for those instagram moments.

Putangirua Pinnacles

Perhaps best described as one of the most beautiful places in New Zealand, these massive earth pillars reach over ten metres high. The Pinnacles are both dramatic and awe-inspiring. If you are interested in ancient geological formations set against a backdrop of lush valley vegetation, this is your spot. As a bonus, they are easy to access, so no rigorous trekking required to step into this other realm.


Even if you’re not a Tolkien fan, a visit to Hobbiton is still magical. It’s the movie set from the film “Lord of the Rings.” You can wander among the charming hobbit houses, snapping abundant photos or shooting videos that are sure to delight your instagram followers.

Mount Damper Falls

Located in the Waitaanga Conservation Area, Mount Damper Falls stand at an amazing 74-metres tall. Best described as striking and stunning, the scenic waterfall is a bit off the beaten track. In fact, you’ll have to walk through private farmland with sheep-dotted hills to arrive at the falls.

Aoraki/Mount Cook

If you’re looking for a dramatic landscape shot, Aoraki/Mount Cook is New Zealand’s highest peak. One of the most beautiful places in New Zealand, the snow-capped Aoraki/Mount Cook rises from the earth, surrounded by glaciers and glacier-filled lakes, and creating a pristine, beautiful alpine landscape. Hire a campervan and head to Aoraki.

Moeraki Boulders

Along the Koekohe Beach of Otago coast, you can find the Moeraki Boulders. Another geological wonder, they are impressively large, spherical boulders that formed about 65 million years ago. There is much Maori legend associated with the boulders, including that they are the remains from canoes that wrecked carrying ancestors to the South Island. The best photos are taken at sunrise or sunset to capture their mesmerising appeal.

Milford Sound

Milford Sound is a fiord carved by glaciers and New Zealand’s most popular tourist destination — and with good reason. You’ll have amazing opportunities to capture some of New Zealand’s most spectacular scenery. Steep cliffs rising from the water’s edge, rushing waterfalls and snow-capped mountaintops come together to offer breathtaking photos.
