Culverden Fête Tour
Time for some fun with your best friends? Overdue for a few days of pampering?
The Christmas Country Fête is an event bursting with hundreds of remarkable gift ideas, fresh locally grown food and wine, live music, demonstrations and loads more. Your tour includes premium passes to New Zealand’s biggest and most popular country Fête with a French market luncheon by White Tie caterers in Wynyard Gardens and a complimentary glass of wine by Charles Wiffen but that is just the start!
Tick off on your wish list the chance to safari through the largest high country station in New Zealand. Your driver and guide is passionate and knowledgeable about the Molesworth. You will hear incredible stories of the managers, stockmen who tackled this vast, challenging landscape.
Meet Sue MacDonald who is the owner of Middleshurst Station with her husband Willie. Sue will provide morning tea in their beautiful home which looks out onto rugged mountain range of the Awatere Range.
Wine and dine at the best restaurants in Hanmer Springs after your complimentary soak in the reviving natural hot pools. Retreat to your spacious studio unit or twin share as you prefer.
Do you love gardens and art? You will love visiting Penny Zino’s stunning Flaxmere garden for Art in the Garden. Again a premium pass will be awaiting you at the gate with your Gourmet Picnic Lunch Box. Art in a Garden showcases some of New Zealand’s most talented artists and sculptors in one of New Zealand’s top gardens and is a visual event of the Canterbury calendar year.
But the fun is far from over and we have saved the best for the final day. Get your adrenaline running with a short jet boat blast on the Waimakariri River with an accredited and experienced tour company and top it off with lunch and a wine tasting at Pegasus Bay Winery! Cheers!

“The scenery and colours were awesome. Will's driving and very informative and amusing narrative was wonderful and the depth of his knowledge amazing. The food was excellent and abundant and the weather just glorious. A great way to get away from life's stresses and enjoy the vast open spaces and the incredible silence broken only by the occasional beautiful birdsong." Jill Middlemiss, Marlborough, NZ.
