At Labour Weekend, management of the Queenstown Lakes
District Council holiday parks was taken over by a newly
formed private company called Council Camps Revitalised Ltd.
The company consists of two couples with long histories in
the camping ground business and full of ideas about how to
improve the holiday experience of those who choose to camp.
On Boxing Day, Mark Price took the pulse of one of the camps
- the Wanaka Lake View Holiday Park - as it began to fill up
for New Year.
Throughout Otago, people with a love of food and fresh
produce are turning out amazing products. For some it is just
a hobby, for others it has turned into their livelihood. Mark
Price finds out their story.
