Local Tours

Your hosts have organised two complimentary local area tours designed to provide delegates with a glimpse of New Zealand’s landscape, waters, and habitat. The tours will take place concurrently, so delegates are asked to select the tour option they wish to attend.

The tours have been arranged for the afternoon of Tuesday 2 October.

Bookings are essential and will be met on a ‘first come, first served’ basis. Each tour will be limited to 120 participants.

So that you will not be disappointed, it is recommended that you proceed to registration to select your tour option.

Option 2 – Aquarium

A short distance from SkyCity is Kelly Tarltons, Auckland’s iconic sea life aquarium. This is a fantastic opportunity to get up and close with marine animals, including sharks, turtles, stingrays, seahorses, fish and much, much more. It is home to one of the world’s largest – and New Zealand’s only – sub Antarctic and Antarctic penguin colony, and New Zealand’s only turtle rescue centre.

Afternoon tea will be provided.
