Weekend Today is New Zealand-bound with Scenic


Four episodes will air on Nine’s Weekend Today each Saturday from 17 June at 9.30am (AEST).

Tune into Weekend Today over the next few weeks as David Whitehill explores the land of the long white cloud – breathtaking New Zealand – with Scenic, in partnership with Tourism New Zealand and Air New Zealand.

The first stop will be Christchurch, where David will learn about the innovative progress the city is making following the devastating earthquakes of 2010 and 2011.

Then explore the Botanic Gardens in an electric-powered caterpillar, discovering the natural beauty, history and culture of the city oasis.

The next episode will see him hit the world-famous Marlborough wine region, discovering the history of its delicious Sauvignon Blanc, and heading to the Omaka Aviation Centre in Blenheim, home to Sir Peter Jackson’s own collection of WW1 aircraft and artefacts.

Next up, David will be in Wellington and take part in exclusive Scenic Enrich experiences: a visit to Te Papa to discover the treasures and stories of New Zealand’s land and people, and meeting the team from Weta Workshop, responsible for movies like ‘The Lord of the Rings’ trilogy and ‘King Kong’.

The journey will conclude in the beautiful Bay of Islands, and seeing the mighty Tane Mahuta kauri tree with a local Maori guide – a truly unforgettable Scenic Enrich experience.
