Over the weekend instagram feeds have been flooded with amazing photos of New Zealand, from as high as Whangarei and as low as Invercargill. All the photos showcase the very best the country has to offer, as well as giving us all ideas for how to make our own feeds as amazing.
The glut of images are all hashtagged #ChoiceNZTravelGrammer2017 and all the people posting are competing against each other for the title of ‘Choice Hotels NZ TravelGrammer 2017 winner’. All the contestants are being put up by hotelier Choice Hotels, so their accomodation is completely sorted while they head out to make our country look as beautiful as they can possibly make it.
Hit up the instagram hashtag #ChoiceNZTravelGrammer2017 over the next couple weeks to keep up with the competition as more imagery continues to appear to one up each other.
Here’s a couple of our favourite shots so far
Jordan McInally from @undersoulphotography – Quality Hotel International, New Plymouth

As a bit of a bonus we’ve also included some of the best Insta shots they’ve taken so far in their native format.
The views from the air are always a little better! When you catch me on a plane, you’d see that I get distracted real easily with flying across the beautiful landscapes of our amazing country. I had such an awesome time out exploring Blenheim with @choice_hotels_nz #ChoiceNZTravelGrammer2017 ! The memories I’ve had on this trip will definitely stay with me! #QualityHotelMarlborough #choicehotelsnz #needabreak #takemeback – I’m just about to hop on an interview with the Blenheim Paper and I’m so excited to share what’s been going this past weekend here! ✌🏼 If you’d like to go on your own little adventure as well, be sure to follow @choice_hotels_nz for a chance to win a weekend away at the amazing Choice hotel chains across New Zealand 🙂
Wicked day exploring the corners of Whangarei and having an absolute blast.🌞✌🏽️❤️ Started with a morning dip to freshen up @Choice_Hotels_Nz #ComfortHotelFlames before lunch @TheQuayWhangarei a waterside bistro serving its own farmed meat and home grown veggies. @AdventureForest was up next, confronting my vertigo on a high ropes and zip line course. Capped off the arvo with a walk around the beautiful Whangarei waterfall and Kauri park. What a mix of adrenaline, nature and fine food… Speaking of which, I think it’s time for dinner 😝 #ChoiceNZTravelGrammer2017 #ChoiceHotelsNZ #Needabreak
