Hi my names Alani from the Gold Coast just wanting to meet other from my tour before we head off! :heart:


#2

Hi Alani, I just booked today!! I am heading over from Brisbane. My first solo trip so I’m excited and freaking out at the same time :wink:


#3

Hi I’m Dominika, I just booked mine today! I’m from Adelaide and my first solo trip tooo!!! :smiley:


#4

I know it is still some time to go but are you planning on pre-booking any activities, especially in Queenstown?


#5

Hi Zoe,

One activity I definitely wanted to do was skydiving so Ill probably book that one in advance, but I am actually staying in queenstown for the snow a week beforehand so I am gonna play it by ear if anybody else is doing particular activities from the group. I’m sure there are many companies and wouldn’t sell out as it’s touristic location. :slight_smile:

Any you have in mind??


#6

Hey guys… I’m doing this trip as well! Just finalised my booking today! :slight_smile:


#7

Haven’t planned on any activities yet might just see how I go saving and play it by ear! I’d love to sky dive and possible bungy again! Can’t wait to meet all of you :blush:


#8

I haven’t planned anything yet either. Bungy is definitely on the wish list and I guess I can’t go with Queenstown without doing the Shotover. They have had their first lot of snow this week apparently so it should be awesome by the time we are there! Can’t wait!!!


#9

Hey girls! Im doing the Pure Adrenalin which is part of this trip, mine just goes for 3 days longer. I’m so excited to see New Zealand :slight_smile: I’ve booked 4 nights in Queenstown before the tour starts to do a bit of snowboarding, where are you staying in Queenstown Dommy?
I really want to to the Canyon Swing, it looks amazing!!!

Hey Casey,

I booked a place through airbnb, where people just hire out rooms. 5km out from the city centre. Let us know what days you going snowboaring, I booked through nzski.com to go to remarkable and cornet peak. I’ve snowboarded before but my friend hasn’t so depending what level we can head to places together. 5-th-9th were snowboarding. Would be great to meet you beforehand up on the slopes and a night out at queenstown. Add me on facey :slight_smile: Dominika Kapka

#18

Oh I’ll come say hi! :slight_smile:


#19

Bit late now, but they look to be about 30 - 40min walk apart. The Orange line bus goes past the Jailhouse, from town/exchange/interchange get a bus headed towards Halswell and get off I think at the stop after the Burger King which is at the lights just over the railway line (about 10mins from the exchange). Cash fare is $4 though (one free transfer within 2 hours).
