Team FQ’s hol­i­day hot spots

We may be based in Auck­land but at FQ we love the chance to leave the big smoke – here’s where you’ll find us and what we can’t

leave home with­out

DUNEDIN

Sally-Ann Mullin, edi­tor Love them or loathe them, the Scarfies bring such vi­brancy to Dunedin, plus it’s a hot spot for art, fash­ion and mu­sic. I love that you have all the of­fer­ings of a great city but it’s small enough to eas­ily nav­i­gate. And I love the op­por­tu­nity to rug up, some­thing we don’t of­ten get to do in Auck­land.

Travel must-have: Standard Is­sue Cash­mere scarf, $156 – you can’t go past cash­mere in the deep cold.

MARL­BOR­OUGH SOUNDS

Lucy Slight, fea­tures edi­tor and act­ing beauty edi­tor

The breath-tak­ing beauty of the Sounds is un­sur­passed and there’s noth­ing like breath­ing in that crisp, clean sea air. The only down­side? Not be­ing able to get the In­ter­is­lander jin­gle out of your head… Travel must-have: Bird & Knoll scarf, $325 – it’s per­fect for wrap­ping up warm on the boat.

TI­RAU

Mar­cel Gull, cre­ative di­rec­tor

On our way to Ro­torua to shoot ‘Free Spirit’ (p102), Ti­rau was a real high­light. I love the sense of com­mu­nity and co­he­sion of the cor­ru­gated-iron mo­tifs – the dog and sheep sit­ting next to each other and Ti­rau Mo­tors’ vin­tage yel­low car. It’s pic­ture-book per­fect.

Travel must-have: Rodd & Gunn Nor­manby Bag, $1099 – it’s ideal for a week­end in the coun­try.

TARANAKI

Phoebe Watt, fea­tures writer Its key in­dus­tries might be oil, gas and dairy – not so chic – but as the birth­place of three FQ team mem­bers (my­self, Sally-Ann and Lisa), you can’t say it’s all farms, no fash­ion.

Travel must-have: That moun­tain-and-sea combo means its chilly in win­ter, so next time I visit I’ll be in beau­ti­ful Kow­tow knitwear – crew-neck, $229, pants,

$249, and scarf, $199.

MOUNT MAUN­GANUI

Tyla McKen­zie, fash­ion and ed­i­to­rial as­sis­tant It’s my home town so I’m a lit­tle bi­ased but you can’t fault that beau­ti­ful beach! Luca café pro­vides the best post-Mount­climb flat white you’ll ever have. Travel must-haves: La Tribe slides, $179.90, go with ev­ery­thing. Plus, I take Eleven Aus­tralia Mir­a­cle hair treat­ment, $32 – best when put through fresh-out-ofthe-ocean hair.

WHANGA­MATA

Lisa Deken, di­rect ac­count man­ager

This quiet sea­side town has a lit­tle bit of ev­ery­thing: the most pic­turesque beach and es­tu­ary, surf for the hus­band, hik­ing, great cafés for long lazy brunches and if it rains you can shop! I love the an­tique shops and there’s a great lit­tle fash­ion bou­tique called Con­tain where I al­ways find some­thing to take home. Travel must-have: For a win­ter beach break at Whanga­mata, I’ll be pack­ing my Karen Walker for Blunt Lite3 um­brella, $135.

TAUPO

Francesca Knox, com­mer­cial brand man­ager

Taupo is one of my favourite spots to visit; soak­ing in the hot pools at DeBretts af­ter hit­ting the slopes means you get the best of both worlds – ad­ven­ture and re­lax­ation. Travel must-have: Neuw Ber­lin leather jacket, $669.99, and loads of warm lay­ers.

QUEEN­STOWN

Kelly McAuliffe, dig­i­tal edi­tor

Ev­ery time I go to Queen­stown I’m quickly re­minded just how spec­tac­u­lar our coun­try is – few views in the world can match the Re­mark­ables!

Travel must-have: With so many out­door ac­tiv­i­ties to choose from – ski­ing, jet-boat­ing, bungee jump­ing, hik­ing – a good mois­turiser with sun­screen, like In­noxa Time­less Re­ju­ve­nat­ing Anti-Ag­ing Mois­ture Lo­tion

SPF 15, $39.95, is a must.
