Please find below information from the Rotary Club of Pakuranga (courtesy of Ken Hopley):
 
After analysing a questionnaire sent to 4,645 Australian Rotarians via their Rotary Clubs, we (the Auckland Rotary Club of Pakuranga ) have tailored the following tour of New Zealand which includes Rotary events.
 
This tour is 2 weeks long, covers both islands and includes a Rotary host couple and a professional Tour Guide. We are also limiting the quantity of participants to 30 maximum
to ensure it is manageable, friendly and that all participants will be fully involved. So once we get 30 participants we will be closing applications. The tour starts on the 30th March 2017 and runs through to Friday 14th April. (Easter Friday) Several meals and tours are included within the price ($6,490 pp).
