About the event

Vision and Motivation for this Event: - Borne from a passion where we believe Mid Canterbury’s diversity from farming to recreational activities is second to none:

  •  Open to anyone who would like to view a top horticulture export business.
  • Head on down to the farm on one of our family run dairy farms with animal health to the fore
  • Learn about our large Man-Made Lake – Lake Hood and visit a home and garden
  • For those that love history there is our world-renowned Aviation Museum that is home to many rare planes
  • Start and Finish the day at our own Internationally famed Garden – learn of it’s heritage
  • Learn more about this district as you meander through the different rural back drops with our commentators on your bus going over the history of the land
  • High quality information book on venues for all whom attend the day and local information
