Pinot celebration hits Queenstown (Fri, 27th Jan 2012)

  • Pinot celebration hits Queenstown - Pinot Noir grapes on the vine

Central Otago winemakers have come a long way since the first Pinot Noir grapes were planted for scientific research in Alexandra in 1972. The first commercial release was made by Gibbston Valley pioneer Alan Brady in 1987 and since 2000 the achievements of those involved in building the local industry have been celebrated at the annual Central Otago Pinot Noir Celebration. Wine buffs and enthusiasts along with a large international contingent of experts and media have once again converged on Queenstown for the 2012 celebration which started on Thursday and runs until Sunday. It's too late to join in but it's not to late to sample some of the locally produced goods in one of the Wakatipu's fine establishments - remember to ask for Central Otago Pinot Noir!

Who's with the band? (Wed, 18th Jan 2012)

  • Who's with the band? - The Doobie Brothers - supplied by Doobie Brothers.net

Music lovers of a wide range of genres will be spoilt for choice over the next few weeks as a huge selection of talented musicians line up to play in the Queenstown Lakes district. Kiwi musos Barry Saunders and Lindon Puffin get things started at the Winehouse on January 29. The highly popular Rippon music festival follows hot on their heels on February 4 on the shores of Lake Wanaka before an onslaught the following week which will see The Doobie Brothers, Little River Band, Creedence Clearwater Revisited, Tiki Taane, Aloe Blacc, John Butler Trio and Jason Kerrison all play in the Wakatipu. If you enjoy good music and like to have a good time we reckon there's a pretty good chance you will enjoy our jetboat trips, too. We look forward to seeing you soon!

A hummer of a Summer (Mon, 9th Jan 2012)

  • A hummer of a Summer - Sunset over Lake Wakatipu

Summer 2011/2012 is proving to be one of the best in recent memory and the team at Thunder Jet is loving getting out on the glistening water and sharing the beautiful scenery of the Wakatipu with our customers. The weather has been superb and it's no wonder thousands of holidaymakers have been flocking to Queenstown to enjoy a slice of summer paradise. If you haven't managed to see one of the spectacular sunsets we have been enjoying on a regular basis we think you should make a point of catching one. There's plenty going on in the Southern Lakes district this summer and we hope you all make the most of it.
