Staff Wananga 2017

Tena Koutou Katoa,

With the end of the year quickly approaching, it was time for a staff getaway! With only a week to plan, a Te Wai Pounamu (South Island) team building adventure was thrown together (with help from the lovely Sophie at Scenic Pacific Travel). Bags were packed and staff arrived at the train station early Sunday morning, ready to take the TranzAlpine train to Greymouth.

On arrival in Greymouth, the team picked up the two rental vans and began the road trip south to Franz Josef. Stopping to see a few sights on the way…

The next day the team spent the morning on a guided walk at the Franz Josef Glacier, with a trip to the hot pools afterwards to soothe those sore muscles.

Then it was time for another road trip, this time from Franz Josef to Wanaka. The team had kai in Wanaka and settled in for the night at the gorgeous Edgewater Hotel overlooking the lakefront.

The next morning (after a swim in the lake for some) the team was back on the road heading to Aoraki for a scenic flight.

After the flight, it was time for the journey home to Christchurch.

Mauri Ora!
