Queenstown’s latest adventure activity for New Zealand working holiday makers

Ziptrek Ecotours is currently completing the installation of its flying fox operation at Bob's Peak in Queenstown that will see New Zealand Working Holiday makers soaring through the tree trops high above the town.

The two-hour experience, available from next month, will combine adventure with an appreciation for the natural environment.

Queenstown is one of New Zealand's most popular adventure tourism destinations those on a New Zealand Working Holiday Visa, which gives young people aged between 18 and 30 the opportunity to travel and work in New Zealand.

Holders of a New Zealand Visa in the Working Holiday Scheme are allowed to remain in New Zealand for a total of 12 months, although this time is extended to 23 months if you are from the United Kingdom.

Queenstown is located south of Wellington and Christchurch on the country's South Island, and a major hub for working holiday makers due to the adventure activities like white water rafting, skiing, bungee jumping, and mountaineering, as well as the vibrant nightlife and casual jobs.


The New Zealand Visa Bureau is an independent consulting company specialising in helping people with their New Zealand Visa applications through the New Zealand Embassy.
