What is happening within?

During the ongoing updates throughout New-Zealand-Vacations –in – we came across some display errors in particular in the 'Thank you and confirmation dialogue' of the West Auckland Fan-zine Subscription. We apologise for that.

The correct links to the downloadable A4 photo calendars are:

Recently updated areas include online e-cards and NZ proverbs. Be welcome to send virtual greeting cards featuring images of the western region of Auckland. Updating the pages of travel quotes and NZ proverbs sparked the idea to ask what proverbs and sayings you and your family use. A personal favourite of mine is:

Turn your face to the sun and the shadows fall behind you.

Immediately thoughts trail off to beautiful sunny experiences. Reason enough to take it one step further by creating sunny designs for the KiaOra NZ Store.

NZ Inspired Designs

Since some time the KiaOra NZ Store grew by exploring photo gift ideas based on photographs of beach and bush. Further developments venture out into typographic designs. The store founded on a print on demand principle has many designs still fostering room for personalisation. All unique gift idea hunters will love shopping and creating there.

Photo Contest

From 1 August to 30 September 2014, a photo contest takes place under the motto ‘Walking in New Zealand’. What catches your eye? Show it from its best side through your camera lenses.....

Local Businesses

The mission of is to connect people and recommend services. Local businesses use an online business card to introduce their services. New businesses in West Auckland add to the directory are:
