Hollywood Holidays in Aotearoa
NZ was allegedly the holiday destination of choice for a slew of A-list celebrities over the summer. Bill Gates spent Christmas quad-biking at Ahipara with his son, while actors Jack Nicholson and Charlize Theron reportedly spent time on Waiheke Island and there were rumours of Johnny Depp hitting the surf beaches up north. “We’re proud he came here,” said Ahipara Suparette manager Sunita Patel of Bill Gates, Microsoft founder and one of the richest people in the world. Ahipara is a small town at the southern end of Ninety Mile Beach in Northland.
