      1. where is the best place to buy wine and beer in queenstown, southland, westcoast, around picton?
      2. Are the supermarkets the same pricing for meat (beef, chicken beasts)? Which supermarket chain has the best deals?
      3. Is BBQ in NZ charcoal or electricity ? What do I need to buy if I want to do BBQ at my accomodation? For eg, BBQ utensils, butter? oil? seasoning? etc Do I hv to stock all these items up? What are the basic seasoning provided there?
      4. Is coffee provided at guesthouse, backpackers, hostels in the morning? I would like to hv coffee before I drive to wake up and need to get coffee somewhere if possible!

      OR can someone tell me what are the things I hv to stock up at the supermarket before I start my road trip becos these items are not provided at any accomodation in NZ.

      5. I intend to rent a car to stock up at a cheaper price for travel. I hv heard of fuel savings programme at supermarket in NZ and wonder what is this about?

      6. Where can I buy bluff oysters if I am not intending to drive up to bluff. I would love to try local seafood, and so far I have only heard of bluff oysters. Can someone tell me more on what type of local seafood and fish I should buy and try at local supermarket? I heard NZ has lots of such good food and I am getting hungry reading alone! THANKS.

    • DC3 rides

      by bryah Online Now Feb 27, 2008 at 5:42 PM

      Hey there,
      Does anyone know if they are going to do flights in the dc3 plane for the public, if so how much does it cost and can you pre-book or do you just do it on the day? I went to the Warbirds over Wanaka a few years ago now but we paid to do a short senic flight over lake Wanaka and I would like to do it again this year.
      email at if you know!

    • In Wanaka over New Year's?

      by pmangunta Online Now Nov 9, 2007 at 12:07 PM

      Hi all,
      A friend and I will be in the Wanaka area over New Year's Eve...while we don't feel the need to get obliterated in a bar, we would like to have a fun New Year's Eve! Is Wanaka a good place for us to be that night? It seems like a great area, outdoors-wise...but I'm worried it might not be a good place to celebrate. Am I off-base? Any thoughts would be appreciated!

    • Silver Snowboarder looking for riding partners

      by tonynitro Online Now Jun 11, 2006 at 10:06 AM

      I'm booked for a stay in both Wanaka and Queenstown during the snowboarding
      season (Arrive August 24, 2006 in Wanaka, leave Queenstown on Sept 12). Are there any senior riders/ local or visitor, interested in showing me your slopes?

      I would be certainly amenable to returning the favor in Colorado's front range,
      from A-Basin to Vail, when opportunity presents itself. I snowboard and ski
      100 plus days a season. I'm 62 and fit. Let's ride!
