Monteith’s celebrates its 150th anniversary of bringing beer to Kiwis
One of New Zealand’s wildest destinations, the rugged West Coast of the South Island, has traditionally been the haunt of tough mountain men, women and miners. Back in the day, one of the main things that kept the early pioneers happy was beer. Monteith’s Brewing Company has been there from the beginning, refreshing the thirsty throngs who were hardy and adventurous enough to call the West Coast home.

In 2018, Monteith’s celebrates its 150th anniversary of bringing beer to Kiwis. It has quite a few parties planned and will introduce a few new beers, specially brewed to mark the occasion.

Watch the Warbirds Over Wanaka

Warbirds Over Wanaka
Celebrating 30 years of spectacles in the sky, Warbirds Over Wanaka International Airshow is one of the world’s most-loved aviation festivals. Established by Sir Tim Wallis, a pilot looking for a way to showcase his private collection of WWII aircraft, the biennial event is held in even-numbered years at Easter (30 March – 1 April, 2018), attracting up to 50,000 aviation fans. Watch in awe as aircraft from the pioneer days of flight astonish you with their aerobatics, and then marvel as more modern flying machines zoom overhead.

It’s a World of Wearable Art in Wellington

 World of WearableArt Awards Show
The World of WearableArt Awards Show, or WOW as it’s fondly known, is one of the highlights of Wellington’s annual event schedule, and features works by some of the world’s most innovative designers and couturiers competing for prizes worth more than $165,000 NZD (approx. $148,400 Cdn). With a range of events, the major draw is the showcase of the top entries – the crème de la crème of the creations. WOW has been described as a “collision of theatre, fashion and art,” and with 2018 being its 30th year since starting out in a Nelson country cottage, they’ll be pulling out all the stops.
