Real Journeys a privately owned tourism business

first_imgReal Journeys, a privately owned tourism business with operations from Queenstown to Stewart Island, has announced a new convention and events centre to be built near Queenstown by 2020.The convention centre is the second stage of a NZ$20 million development at Walter Peak High Country Farm, which will also include a restaurant, in a restored heritage building seating up to 150 people.“It’s such a stunning natural alpine environment at Walter Peak that our event facility will probably be more of a retreat,” said Real Journeys director of product development, Matthew Day.He said the venue would be a combination of heritage and architectural buildings set in cottage gardens, with lake and mountain views.A large new amphitheatre, seating up to 400 people, is part of the first stage of the development, to be built in time for next season’s Walter Peak Farm tour demonstrations.“We know people work better in a beautiful environment so we wanted something away from the hustle bustle where they can unplug, reflect and totally focus on the event,” said Day.Real Journeys has also added a new fleet of transportation at Walter Peak: the Ubco electric trail bike.Designed in New Zealand, the dual electric-drive trail bike has a lightweight frame and powerful near-silent motor in each wheel that provide complete control for an off-road adventure at Walter Peak.last_img
