Our pleasure to provide transport from #EdgewaterResortNZ as we have for many of those years... Kia Ora and Kea Kaha! #pureNewZealand #LakeWanakaNZ #NZpow ... See more
Possibly the most scenic Stoat trap locations in the #MatuktukiValley - If not the Southern Alps of #pureNewZealand. Trap no.4, close to snowline installed today to protect our endangered wildlife - Especially the Kea The world's only alpine parrot that lives on or above the snowline. Stoats are vicous predators introduced to control Rabbits that reached plague proportions - Stoats find our innocent birds like Kiwi, Kakapo, Takahe and Weka easy prey due to their innocence of not having any ground predators until us humans arrived and tipped their scales toward extinction. There are over 2200 traps in the valley below to turn the tide on this trend - And is working, #Bringbackthebirdsong! We are doing our bit.... #LakeWanakaNZ #NZBirds #NZKea #TrebleCone ... See more
Peaceful reflections of winter in Wanaka - On our Misty Mountains Heli hike route, preparing to put another stoat trap at the edge of snowline at #TrebleConeNZ to protect our precious Keas (Alpine Parrots) from harm from predators- Even in winter! #pureNewZealand #LakeWanakaNZ #NZBirds ... See more
Sunrise this morning was worth a break from skiing, to take it all in.... Our big bright backyard... Fun and games at the #snowfarm NZ. #pureNewZealand #LakeWanakaNZ #nzmustdo #realMiddleEarth
Great chilling out after some superb skiing in the region over the last few days by exploring beautiful Lake Wanaka on our lake Cruise/walk. Check this eye candy island out as seen today and yesterday on ecowanaka.co.nz for more details about this magic half day trip. #pureNewZealand #nzmustdo #realMiddleEarth #LakeWanakaNZ #Weka ...

These are the birds we meet on our trips and need protecting for their own good! Curiosity killed the Kea... So clever!
Rob Roy Glacier guided walk is a really cool alternative to skiing in Wanaka. We had a great day with two little forest goblins from #realMiddleEarth Sydney, yesterday in the #MatuktukiValley #WorldHeritagesite #pureNewZealand #nzmustdo at #WanakaNZ ... See more
This is a border dispute between Buff Weka on our Lake Cruise/walk on #LakeWanakaNZ. Gentle and innocently trusting of humans, as we are recent additions to NZ fauna, comparatively. These birds chose to lose the power of flight eons ago, due to no ground predators and simply to save energy. Fiercely territorial, this interloper has over-stepped the mark. Only bruised egos usually result from these faceoffs.#Weka #NZFlightlessbirds #WildWanaka #NZLandwars ... See more
Flying over Lake Wanaka today, looking down on our backyard, then going to the magical Mou Waho island as seen from above in the beautiful afternoon light was #pureNewZealand at it's best, as good as it gets! With Allan and daughter Julie from the States. #LakeWanakaNZ #lovewanaka #NZmustdo ... See more
