Epic adventure for 18 to 35 year olds

Southbank Lagoon



Head to South Bank and cool down with a dip in Streets Beach, the massive beach-style lagoon in the middle of the city. Work on your tan in the sand, wade in the water or swim a few laps in the Boat Pool. Pack some snacks for later and settle in beside the water at River Quay for an afternoon picnic.

After a dip, wander through the Epicurious Garden surrounding the lagoon. With its exotic plants, fragrant herbs and lush, tranquil surrounds, South Bank’s stunning Epicurious Garden is a must-see for locals and visitors alike. Located in the heart of the South Bank Parklands, near River Quay, the Epicurious Garden is free to visit and is open all year round.

Where do I start! Absolutely fantastic tour! The places are all breathtaking, postcard quality views around every corner. I am in love with New Zealand now and can’t wait to be back.

Had the most amazing tour in the south island. I was nervous about travelling solo the first time but such a small group of awesome people made it a great experience and I never felt like I was alone!

The itinerary was great, we got to see so much and even the driving days were fun because we got to stop off at so many beautiful and out of the way places.
