Keeping the children entertained these school holidays is easy on a range of trips with Real Journeys when, accompanied by a full fare-paying adult, school-aged children go free (up to two children per adult). The following trips can be enjoyed:
Share a little history with the children and take a cruise on the iconic TSS Earnslaw, now in its 105th year. View the engine room and historic displays. Disembark at Walter Peak High Country Farm on the western shore of Lake Wakatipu for a taste of rural New Zealand. Children love feeding the farmyard animals and cheering on the sheepdog rounding up the sheep. On the cruise home, sing along with the piano player or simply relax and enjoy the scenery.
This is a trip full of enchantment. The cruise starts at Te Anau and crosses the lake to caves sculpted by rushing water. Walk past gushing waterfalls into the quiet and complete dark, where glowworms shimmer in their thousands. Tip: Children love this adventure!
Turn your holidays into an adventure the family will never forget; head to the fjords of New Zealand's World Heritage Area. Just a 20min drive from Te Anau, the village of Manapouri is the starting point for the journey to Doubtful Sound, where you can enjoy a Wilderness Cruise.
Alternatively, take the two- to three-hour journey to Milford Sound for a Scenic or Nature Cruise. The stunning scenery will always delight. Keep an eye out for fur seals and sometimes even dolphins.
Visit New Zealand's third-largest island, with free passage for children on Stewart Island Ferries.
Once there, explore a renowned wildlife sanctuary on our Ulva Island Explorer tour.
