New Zealand is a land of quirky collectors, larger-than-life characters, unusual backyard projects and some of the most beautiful ‘off the beaten track’ scenery in the world.

Unexpected New Zealand travels across the country searching out quirky experiences and sublime scenery that are known to locals but are most often bypassed by visitors heading to better-known attractions. This book is similar to the Worth A Detour series but this book features images for every destination and lots of new attractions.

 Stroll empty beaches, experience unusual sights and adventures and uncover the other side of New Zealand’s history and landscape with this comprehensive guidebook.

Respected and award winning New Zealand travel writer Peter Janssen uncovers some of the country’s unknown treasures that most New Zealanders didn’t even know existed!

“I have travelled just about every road and visited every town in the North Island, but I’m drawn to the quirky places bypassed by travellers and the eccentric characters that have great stories to tell.” says Peter.
