Stronger connections for a better New Zealand

At Great Journeys New Zealand, we believe responsible travel should provide many benefits, both to communities and the environments we live in.  We are working to support a more sustainable future for our beautiful country and partner with others to help further support a sustainable future.   Some of the actions we have taken include:


  • Working through a waste minimisation plan to reduce single use items and divert waste from landfill.
  • We’ve recently expanded our tourism offering introducing packages and tours helping to support regional communities in Aotearoa.
  • We are working with regional operators committed to best sustainable practices.

A Sustainable Future with Great Journeys New Zealand

Great Journeys New Zealand aligns with KiwiRail’s Rautaki Whakauka Sustainability Strategy and believes a sustainable business contributes to a vibrant, clean economy that works for the environment, society and the economy.   These are the central pillars of our strategy, and reflect kaitiatanga (guardianship), manaakitanga (care and protect), and whanaungatanga (sense of connection) respectively.
