KiwiburnHunterville, New Zealand

New Zealand’s answer to Burning Man is all about self-exploration, collective living, creativity and, well, burning things. This eco-friendly paddock party is full of free spirits, art installations and nude strangers happy to share a hug. You're sure to have your fair share of hippie-inspired conversations as you mingle with the festival's open-minded crown. Who knows, you might even find the answer to all the world's problems while staring into the flames.

The festival is about 190 kilometres from Wellington and 460 kilometres from Auckland.
