Don’t get cabin fever

Central Otago Mirror - - CENTRAL NEWS -

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).
