The optional Pre-Tour is always one of the most exciting aspects of the trip. The Contingent will spend 7 days and nights travelling the South and North Islands before we arriving at the main event - the Venture itself. The Pre-Tour is an incredible opportunity to experience all that New Zealand has to offer, and to get to know your fellow Australians. It's an additional cost, but totally worth it for the complete New Zealand experience.
The Pre-Tour group arrives in Queenstown, the adventure capital of New Zealand. After getting settled in the accommodation we are off to a secret location for the Pre-Tour opening party.
We have three full activity days in Queenstown so you get a chance to experience everything on offer in this amazing town. Activities will include white water rafting, jet boating, mountain biking, parasailing, scenic flights, amazing race, gondola & luge, and more!
The Contingent travels to Auckland for the North Island leg of the Pre-Tour. Try to catch up on sleep during the flight, you'll need it for our MASSIVE New Year's Eve Party that night! Imagine bringing in the New Year with 400+ Aussies, all rocking out to our own private DJ!
Free day to catch up on sleep and spend time exploring Auckland.
The Contingent will head to the Coromandel Coast for a full day trip of activities including hot water beach.
The Non-Pretour group arrives and the entire Contingent travels to the Venture site for the Opening Ceremony!
Below are just a few of the activities on offer during the Australian Contingent Pre-Tour. What could be more fun than spending 7 extra days with potentially 400 Venturers in the adrenalin capital of the world - it's a once in a lifetime opportunity!
