In other countries they might call it the ‘roundabout way’ to get somewhere. Or the ‘scenic route’. But in New Zealand it’s a ‘Tiki tour’, and it’s the only way to go. It involves getting from A to B via L&P®.
Your classic Tiki tour is all about enjoying the journey as much as the destination, and checking out as many 'choice' national icons as you can along the way.
This stunning new edition of 24 stamps has been designed to capture the ‘get up and go’ spirit of the classic Kiwi Tiki tour, celebrating so many of the home-grown fascinations across the land.
Our unique wildlife, landscapes, buildings, statues and industries are all here. So if you’re keen to have a quick Tiki tour, you’d better be quick and get your sheet of stamps now.
