Travelbug May Newsletter

 


 

Ahh May. It's one of those months: the days are shorter and the temperature is dropping, but not enough to ski – yet. We are past the glut of public holidays and have winter to look forward to.

It's not all doom and gloom though! This month we have some sweet deals in the Coromandel (a brilliant spot to escape the winter blues), great ski packages in the South Island, and we celebrate the re-opening of another Christchurch hotel.

You've also got another fortnight to nab some sweet secret sale deals, and Queen's Birthday is just a few weeks away.

Have a great weekend ahead!

Featured activity – The Denniston Experience

We are pretty lucky here at Travelbug to work in an exciting industry. Each month our aim is to unearth an activity to showcase something that is a little out of the ordinary.

The West Coast and mining go hand in hand. But for most of us non-coasters, the industry is unknown to us. The Denniston Experience launched last year, a 2-hour tour that takes visitors into an original 1880's coal mine where visitors are allocated a role to play – 1880 styles. The experience includes a guided tour into an original 1880's coal mine, plus a train journey to the ghost town of Denniston.

If pioneering history is of interest, then this tour 25 minutes north of Westport will hold a lot of appeal.

 


 
 


 

And that's all for May. Have a great weekend ahead – keep warm and keep an eye in your inbox over the coming weeks for some sweet Queen's Birthday deals.

Cheers from the team at Travelbug.
