Doesn't this look ideal? The cold winter days are upon us and these Hot Pools are certainly the way forward! Make sure you book your pool time well in advance as it fills up super fast.

This is the biggest Bungy jump in New Zealand. The Nevis Bungy was by far the largest scream I've made while getting my adventure on...might have something to do with falling for 7 seconds towards the earth!

While it didn't look like this for the naked eye, the Aurora was well worth the drive up Coronet Peak to see. My first time seeing the Southern Lights and I will certainly be chasing the Aurora again. I'm hooked!!! So stoked to see so many Queenstowners on the hunt too.
