Tourist routes in 1902

Tourist routes in 1902

The Scenery Preservation Commission and Scenery Preservation Board were mindful to make scenic reserves in areas frequented by tourists. Quite a few tourist routes were already recognised. This Thomas Cook guide of 1902 shows national tours that feature the geothermal districts in the North Island and the southern lakes and fiords. As this map shows, at this time long journeys around New Zealand were mainly taken by steamer rather than rail or road.
