Hippopotamus Restaurant – High Tea

  • Time: 1300-1500
  • Cost: NZD$51
  • Date: Saturday 17th October

Strut in as proud as a peacock to be served flamboyant Parisian chic. Enter the eclectic world of a fabby French grandma who knows how to drink.

Zealandia Tour

  • Cost: NZD$71
  • Date: Sunday 18th October

Zealandia is the world’s first fully-fenced urban ecosanctuary, with an extraordinary 500-year vision to restore a Wellington valley’s forest and freshwater ecosystems as closely as possible to their pre-human state. The 225 hectare ecosanctuary is a groundbreaking conservation project that has reintroduced over 20 species of native wildlife back into the area, some of which were previously absent from mainland New Zealand for over 100 years.

Te Papa Tongarewa Tour

  • Time: 1000-1200
  • Cost: NZD$22
  • Date: Saturday 17th October

Te Papa Tongarewa translates literally to ‘Container of Treasures’. A fuller interpretation is ‘our container of treasured things and people that spring from mother earth here in New Zealand’. Te Papa’s philosophy emphasises the living face behind its cultural treasures, many of which retain deep ancestral links to the indigenous Māori people. The Museum recognises the partnership that was created by the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi, te Tiriti o Waitangi, in 1840.

Full-Day Martinbrough Wine Tour

  • Time: 0900-1715
  • Cost: NZD$ 225
  • Date: Friday 16th October

Martinborough is one of New Zealand’s prime wine regions and is home to some of the country’s most highly respected wineries. The climate of the region has been compared to that of Burgundy in France and the cool climate with excellent soils are perfect for the production of balanced, elegant wines made from Chardonnay and their claim to fame which is the exceptional quality of its Pinot Noir.
