We've missed you

29/05/2020 - 25/10/2020

It’s been a wee while since we’ve seen your smiling faces, but now the country has moved to Level 1 we can’t wait to see you.

Now is a good time to start planning some local trips to discover the rich heritage of Aotearoa New Zealand and a unique time where we get them all to ourselves!

Looking after our people... and you

As much as we're looking forward to seeing you, we still need to be careful and look after each other.  Contact tracing registers, additional cleaning and hygiene procedures, monitoring of group sizes and other governmental advice regarding Covid-19 response applies.  We ask you to be patient if some services may not be available as promptly as usual.  We appreciate your understanding - the health of all of us continues to be the most important thing right now.
