Don’t get cabin fever
It’s been a long school term; the kids are tired and the days are short. Inspire your family by exploring those places others travel from across the world to see. Best news is that the kids go free on various excursions over NZ school holidays. Everyone plans to do this one day, but there will never be a better time. It’s low season, kids go free and the weather is at its most settled. The extraordinarily majestic scenery of Milford Sound looks even better with a dusting of snow on top. There are usually seals basking on the rocks and if you’re lucky, dolphins to see. The iconic TSS Earnslaw is currently out of service in preparation for this year’s centenary celebrations. During this time the steamship is substituted with a launch so Walter Peak Farm Excursions can still be enjoyed. Children can feed the animals at Walter Peak High Country Farm before watching a sheepdog demonstration. A hearty afternoon tea with pikelets and scones completes this rural afternoon. Kids also go free on selected Te Anau Glowworm Caves Excursions, Doubtful Sound Wilderness Cruises and Stewart Island Ferry Services.
Kids go free on Walter Peak Farm excursions: “Kids Go Free” applies to children up to 18 years accompanied by a full fare-paying adult (maximum 2 per adult).
