Brook Sabin and Radha Engling are on a six-week Stuff Travel Maui motorhome trip around New Zealand, looking for the best things to do this summer.

Wētā Workshop Unleashed opened in 2021 and just like the world-class special effects and props they’ve created for movies like Lord of the Rings and Avatar, co-founders Richard Taylor and Tania Rodger dreamed up a world-class attraction for Auckland.
