Yes, there is such thing as a Chocolate Carnival and it is hosted by none other than Cadbury, one of the most well-known chocolate brands around the world. This annual event is held every summer and for one week this carnival delights chocolate lovers of all ages with its tours, chocolate decorations, painting and the ultimate Cadbury Crunchie Train. The carnival is also host to the famous Cadbury Jaffa Race, where balls of orange sugar-coated chocolate are rolled down the world’s steepest street, in one weird race. There are ice skating events, chocolate demonstrations, guided kids activities and more. The Crunchie Train ride alone is enough to entice visitors though, where visitors hop on board to discover the fantastic scenery between Dunedin and Hindon on the Taieri Gorge Railway, where suspicious characters are on board looking to steal the loot and where children’s stories are read aloud by staff.
It would be a shame to visit New Zealand and not experience the sites where the famous Lord of the Rings Trilogy was filmed, especially when you have the kids in tow. There are over 150 locations used in the films and much of the film was shot near major landmarks and tourist centers, so visiting them is quite easy. The biggest decision you have is deciding whether to take a self-guided tour or joining a tour group. Many of the tour groups offer the chance to visit both the Waitomo Glowworm Caves and the Hobbiton Movie Set in one day. The caves will enchant visitors with the thousands of twinkling lights in the glowworm grotto while the movie set lets you pose for pictures in front of the hobbit holes, the pond and the Green Dragon Inn. Whether it is the dramatic scenery you are after, or the movie sets, there is a tour for you here.
