The tour in detail

Start with a private guided tour through the stunning Omaka Aviation Heritage Centre. Best described as a “movie set” this stunning exhibit brings to life the private collection of Sir Peter Jackson (Movie director from Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit). Tour through the World War 1 and World War 2 exhibit taking in the history, the stories, and the truly unique and rare collection of aircraft and memorabilia.

After lunch board our launch for a stunning and unique scenic cruise through the Marlborough Sounds. (This is a shared cruise with other people). This afternoon cruise takes in the fabulous scenery along with great commentary on the area and the people who have settled here. Visit marine farms and see a different style of farming along with a fabulous tasting of fresh seafood matched to award winning Sauvignon Blanc. A wonderful wine and food match in a beautiful part of Marlborough.
