New Zealand Maps and Books

Goods on this New Zealand Maps and Books page used to be free but I can't be 100% sure if they still all are. The books/leaflets are full of all kinds of information that will help you make the most of your holiday.

My recommended New Zealand Road Maps

I have provided the titles to some of Jasons Guides below. However, due to great demand for some of these free guides, in particular the Route Planner Guides, delivery may have conditions.

Update: I am not sure if Jason's guides are still available under the titles below. While I try to find this out, please...

Go directly to Jason's website to find out what the current situation is with the guides.

Failing postal delivery, you will find these free maps and guides at most airports and i-SITE centres, along with campsites and many other tourist places.

Free Jason's - Holiday Parks And Campgrounds - Accommodation Directory New Zealand.
A free holiday park and camping ground guide, including for campervan touring, along with backpacker lodge and campground information across New Zealand.

New Zealand holiday camping parks offer some best value and equipped campgrounds that can be found anywhere round the world. As well as there being plenty of caravan and campervan sites to choose from, there are lots of holiday parks, and campgrounds, that feature other accommodation to choose from with a range options such as tourist cabins, right through to the more motel type accommodation. I was surprised at how well equipped the sites are, with large and communal kitchen areas and dining areas, along with lounges where you can socialise with other travellers.

Free Jason's 'Business & Discerning Traveler Accommodation Directory New Zealand 2005'
This is something for business and discerning travellers looking for accommodation in New Zealand. It is a guide covering either holiday or business accommodations such as motor lodges and motels and is a really useful free guide.
