New Zealand town offers Aussies cheap holidays
Napier's Inner Harbour at night

A New Zealand town is offering discounted holidays to Australians who need a break after the recent spate of natural disasters.

The people of the seaside city of Napier, on the east coast on New Zealand's North Island, have combined forces to launch the 'Give an Aussie a Break' campaign, which offers cheap package deals to all Australian citizens.

Napier Mayor Barbara Arnott said her townspeople were desperate to help people affected by the recent floods and cyclone by sharing their idyllic city for a few weeks.

"We have seen the devastation the recent floods along eastern Australia's have had on their communities and we feel Australian's deserve a break," Ms Arnott said.

"Our community has donated to the various flood relief funds, and now our local council wants to give Australians a break.

"We would love to share our piece of paradise with all our great Aussie friends, so we've put together some special holiday packages that include discounts on airfares, accommodation and attractions."
