My birthday is sort of a big deal; well, isn’t everyone’s? It is a celebration of being on this earth another 365 (or 366 in a leap year) days and conquering the challenges of life. This being said, my husband truly gives my birthday the recognition and spotlight he feels it deserves, and I guess with a wife who is approaching 40, it is the safe thing to do to keep me from dreading that day in mid-January. This year, he gave my 38th rotation around the sun spectacular treatment with a bucket-list-ticking trip to the adventure capital of the world – Queenstown New Zealand. A town that mirrors the quirkiness and quaintness of Aspen Colorado, Queenstown is a place where your inner adrenaline-junkie’s dreams come true. Therefore, in honour of this risk-taking, death-defying momentum, I have comprised a bucket list of must-do’s series while in this beautiful South Island haven, starting with a zip through the trees with Ziptrek Ecotours.
Hundreds of Queenstown locals ‘took to the trees’ for a locals’ day treat raising thousands of dollars for the Wakatipu Reforestation Trust.
Ziptrek Ecotours is bringing its award-winning Queenstown experience to over 260 of the world’s leading travel buyers at New Zealand’s biggest international tourism event.
It’s a well-known ‘fact’ that Australians speak a different language, so when launching a new audio tour app, Queenstown-based tourism company Ziptrek Ecotours has put together an Aussie version for our friends across the ditch – as well one in Mandarin.
Queenstown’s Ziptrek Ecotours is ecstatic to have been named a finalist for the Environmental Tourism Award at this year’s Tourism Industry Awards.
Award-winning Queenstown tourism company Ziptrek Ecotours is pleased to welcome new sales executive Will Murphy.
Mr Murphy has been introduced to focus on local and national retail sales as well as handling group sales enquiries and regional promotions.
Ziptrek Sales & Marketing Manager Nicky Busst said she was very happy to have Mr Murphy as part of the team.
“As New Zealand’s original zipline tour company, appointing Will is a strategic decision to find someone who is well known in the local community and has the personality and skill set to take this key area of our business to the next level,” she said.
Mr Murphy said he welcomed the “fantastic opportunity” to join a company that was growing with an amazing reputation and great people.
