This multi-faceted interactive encounter uses audio/visual displays as well as large exhibits, showcasing Mid Canterbury's main industries - farming and snow sports. While adults will find the encounter super-informative, children of all ages will find a lot of fun things to do and try, with a digger driver, a combine harvester, an igloo and our popular cow, Thelma.
The Encounter has been created to give visitors a real understanding of the way of life in rural Canterbury and the way our two key industries, farming and snow sports, are linked together through trade, tourism and shared reliance on our unique geology and climate.
Visit the NZ Alpine & Agriculture Encounter and one full paying adult entitles one child (10 yrs and under) to free entry.
