Kia ora to all you rugby fans out there! At backpacker, we’re starting a regular blog feature on the upcoming tournament.
There’s gonna be information about each team, profiles on the regions they’ll be playing in, festival event guides and an awesome cheat sheet telling you the best pub spots close to each stadium, where to get your merchandise and lets not forget the all important campgrounds.
This will be a great resource for everything a tourist would want to know when coming downunder for the rugby. The big news at the moment is the lottery draw for game tickets. Are you in?
We also thought we’d better let you know that our Backpacker Campervan rates have just been released for the Rugby World Cup (September to November 2011). Be sure get in soon before they’re all booked out! Search availability and book online.
As part of next years tournament, New Zealand is running a national festival with awesome events happening all over the country, so if you’re not going to a match, you’ll certainly have loads of other activities to get up to. We’ll be profiling different events in this blog. Whether you’re into seafood festivals, film, wine, cultural events, arts or music gigs, New Zealand will have you covered.
