Latest 2010 version, full of clear information on campsites, walks, places of interest with GPS co-ordinates. Includes details of campsite facilities. Several city-scale maps, covers north and south island. Many online shops had links to this product but they were either out of stock or were the first edition. Has handy info like "hire vehicles prohibited on this road". Size is about A4, about 3/4 inch thick so a bit bulky for canvas campers.

This atlas was included in the motorhome we hired and it was unbelievably helpful. We almost bought an atlas before we went but I'm glad we didnt as this one was superb. It includes a section on motorhome and campsite locations, split by North and South Island, with a legend of facilities and comments from the author, as well as locations of particularly good rest areas. The maps themselves are good too - with many local attractions marked including Lord of the Rings filming locations, with more detailed maps for larger towns and cities.

This was our main reference when spending a month touring. Good maps and best of all highlights the places to stop and view aspects (missed from other books) even though we were not expecting it. It did miss many MANY sites but as we joined the NZMCA we had their site book as well, and used bith of them to find sites.
I would even go so far as to recommend this as a book for non-motorhome/caravan users. It may seem a bit bulky but we never had to refer (I mean NEVER) to the road atlas and map that we bought and as above, great for finding where birds and animals could be seen etc.
Definately our best buy for our visit.
