Jules Lund describes why New Zealand deserves the accolade of Getaway Country of the Year

Popular Australian TV travel show Getaway has named New Zealand “Country of the Year” for 2008.

According to the show’s presenter Jules Lund, New Zealand “really does have an adventure for everyone, incredible scenery, great cities, gourmet food and wine, world class accommodation, friendly locals and of course a friendly exchange rate. It’s no wonder it’s a personal favourite of the Getaway crew too.”

Getaway produced a one-hour TV special highlighting some of the many attractions visitors will find in New Zealand.
