SPECIAL HOLIDAY FEATURE
WHO says there is no such thing as a
Wellington has decided to hook any
Australians who visit during the Visa
Wellington On a Plate 2010 festival with a
free lunch. And they're not talking a crusty
sandwich or lukewarm pie, but a classy
two-course meal with a glass of wine.
Wellington restaurants have taken
home New Zealand's top dining accolades
for the past four years. And with three
new food markets having opened or
expanded in the past year, the cosmopoli-
tan capital is now a one-stop foodie shop.
All Australians have to do is show their
Australian passport and flight e-ticket that
prove they've come during festival time
(August 14-29) at the Wellington i-SITE
RECOGNISING the importance trav-
ellers place on good food, APT's

Dine Around Dinners offer a choice of
restaurants in Nelson, Christchurch,
Queenstown and Mt Cook, and are includ-
ed in the tour price. You choose to dine
early or late, with friends or alone. And on
Premier Plus tours, you choose what you
would like to eat from a-la-carte menus.

Team designed to assist groups who
want to take a trip to New Zealand, or any-

can be a Probus club, bowling or RSL club,
corporate body, sporting group, special
interest, or even a large family group.
The company can help design a touring
program of any length, enabling the group
to travel when and where they want while
still enjoying Scenic Tours service and
The company promises fast, competi-
sights or explore Maori culture.
The company offers short stay and long
stay holidays, with advice on car hire and
accommodation, motorhomes, independ-
ent coach tours and escorted coach holi-
days. It says farmstays, homestays and bed
and breakfasts are popular.

and a network of powder-blue canals
form the tapestry of a remarkable region
known as Mackenzie Country.
Mt Cook/Aoraki is the highest peak of
the Southern Alps, a mountain range that
runs the length of the South Island and a
Staying at Mt Cook can be expensive,
but according to Keith Weber of Great
Experiences New Zealand, it is well worth
it. The company's coach tours stay two
nights at the Hermitage Hotel at the base
of the mountain. Optional activities
range from easy guided walks to helicop-
ter flights and glacier excursions.
