If you want to experience Central Otago in pure luxury then join us on this exclusive PlaceMakers trip. From staying in your own suite at St Moritz offering unparalleled views of Lake Wakatipu and The Remarkables; to getting airborne and seeing this great land from a birds eye view, to the ultimate wining and dining. PlaceMakers Central Otago experience will be one you don’t want to miss!

Queenstown is undeniably the adventure capital of New Zealand but along with the action-packed activities on offer, Queenstown and the surrounding area offers picture post card scenery at every turn. You may have been to Queenstown previously, but we plan to WOW you even more with this PlaceMakers Plus event. You’ll stay in 5 star accommodation, and enjoy all the luxuries of a PlaceMakers Plus experience. Exploring your own backyard and making the most of our time in this gorgeous part of the world with daily activities on offer, and tonnes of fun included.  You’ll have plenty of time to explore or just kick back at the lodge and enjoy some down time with your friends.

We have selected May as the month to travel as the trees are in full Autumn bloom, the weather, though crisp tends to be dry and allows you to experience all that the region has to offer. Think beautiful local Central Otago Pinot Noir in front of a fire with delicious local food to match.
