Kids go free

Central Otago Mirror - - COOKING -

Keep­ing the kids en­ter­tained over the Au­tumn school hol­i­days doesn’t have to cost a for­tune. School-aged kids go free on a range of ex­cur­sions with Real Jour­neys over the New Zealand hol­i­days (from April 16 to May 1, 2011), when ac­com­pa­nied by a full-fare­pay­ing adult (up to two chil­dren per adult). Kids go Free in Queen­stown Take this op­por­tu­nity to go for a cruise on the TSS Earnslaw. Queen­stown’s iconic steamship has been cross­ing Lake Wakatipu for al­most a hun­dred years.

There are pho­tos and mem­o­ra­bilia in the small mu­seum

on board; share some of our his­tory with your chil­dren. Dis­em­bark at Wal­ter Peak High Coun­try Farm on the west­ern shore of Lake Wakatipu for a taste of ru­ral New Zealand.

Chil­dren love feed­ing the farm­yard an­i­mals and cheer­ing on the sheep­dog as he rounds up the sheep.

Even the sheep shear­ing is en­ter­tain­ing. On the cruise home sing along with the piano player or sim­ply re­lax and en­joy the scenery.

Travel fur­ther afield for an un­for­get­table fam­ily ad­ven­ture. Chil­dren go free on se­lected cruises in Mil­ford Sound and Doubt­ful Sound.

Take the time to break your jour­ney in Te Anau, and visit the amaz­ing glow­worm caves. Again, it’s free for chil­dren, and this is a mem­o­rable ex­pe­ri­ence for the whole fam­ily.

Ex­plore the far South with a trip to the beau­ti­ful Rak­iura Na­tional Park. Kids travel free on Ste­wart Is­land fer­ries from April 16 to 30, 2011.

The Kids go Free of­fer is avail­able for the N.Z. school hol­i­days, from April 16 to May 1, 2011 on a range of se­lected de­par­tures. Chil­dren must be trav­el­ling with a full-fare-pay­ing adult (max­i­mum of two chil­dren per adult).
