Real Journeys is continuing
its Kids Go Free promotion
these school holidays.
The promotion is becoming somewhat of
a tradition with the initial idea coming
from Real Journeys founders Olive and
Olive and Les wished as many New Zealand
children as possible to have the opportunity
to experience some of the country's
Initially the ''Kids Go Free'' promotion was just
for the TSS Earnslaw but in keeping with the
founders wishes Real Journeys has extended
the offer across a range of products.
In Queenstown kids can jump on the TSS
Earnslaw and experience a farm show at
Walter Peak where they get to interact with
the animals. In Te Anau they can venture
underground and visit the magical Glow-
worm caves - which are always a family
The stunning wilderness regions of Milford
and Doubtful Sounds are also included in this
promotion where waterfalls and wildlife are
often experienced highlights.
The Manapouri Underground power station is
a great educational option for children of all
ages. And if you really want to get the family
away from it all then visit New Zealand's
southern most island Stewart Island with a
free ferry passage for the kids.
Real Journeys intends to continue its ''Kids Go
Free'' promotion across future New Zealand
school holiday periods to ensure children get
to see and experience the country they live
A maximum of two school-aged children per
adult applies. Further terms and conditions
do apply. See realjourneys.co.nz/kidsgofree
for further information.
School holidays: so much time to fill in, but there s so much to
do, especially with the Lakes Leisure School Holiday
Programme where there s no excuse for children telling their
parents they are bored!

Bookings are essential.
Lakes Leisure Holiday Programme.
These school holidays, from Monday 22 April to
Friday 5 May, it's all action for the young
people of the Lakes District at either the
Queenstown Events Centre at Frankton or
Queenstown's Memorial Centre.
Separated into two age groups, juniors 5 -- 7 years
or seniors 8 -- 12 years, there are activities galore to
enjoy, both indoors and outdoors. Land-based or
water based, adventuresome or creative, kids will
be tempted by pizza making, arts & crafts, movies,
dance the day away dressed up as their favourite
rock star, or don their sports gear or togs for action
on the field and in the water.
There's even a 'Mad Hatter and Mask Day'! For the
older kids there's the thrill and the challenge of
zipping down the Ziptrek Ecotour, while the
younger kids are encouraged to become pirates to
sail the high seas of Lake Wakatipu on the TSS
Earnslaw and discover Walter Peak.
Lakes Leisure's Programmes Coordinator Jendi
Paterson says the aim is to have variety in the
programme when it comes to the activities and
keep costs for parents to a minimum.
''Some children have different interests which we
need to cater for,'' she said.
''Some are sporty, while others are more creative,
so it's important to have a balance.''
Bookings are now open for all sessions with limited
spaces available so bookings are essential.
Information for the programme is available on line
Eligible families can also apply for an Oscar subsidy
through WINZ to further reduce the cost of the
