Our Easter escape heads north from Christchurch to lunch with Vicki and Andrew at Coldstream Farm on the way to Kaikoura. Drive the transformed coastal highway to Blenheim and onto the Airshow at Omaka. Discover the beauty of Pelorus Sound and Kenepuru Sound on a cruise to a mussel farm.
What Tracy loves about this tour:
It’s exciting and heart stopping to see Omaka’s Heritage Centre’s vintage aircraft leave the hangars and take to the skies. With mock airfield attacks, ground theatre and pyrotechnics just for starters, the organisers are promising more than a few extra tricks up their sleeve.
5 Day / 4 Night Tour departing Auckland, with stays in Kaikoura and Blenheim, with the highlight being 3 days at the Yealands Classic Fighters Airshow in Omaka
On arrival in Christchurch we drive to Coldstream Farm to lunch with Vicki Collett and Andrew Dalziel. In Kaikoura we visit Fyfe House, built in the 1840s on whalebones, and the “New Normal, the Kaikoura Earthquake Exhibition”.
We stay at The White Morph right across from the ocean in Kaikoura.
