Trans Tasman Challenge
Date: Wednesday 11 December 2019
Venue: Levels 4 and 5, Queenstown Resort College and a secret nearby location
5:30-6:45pm Activity - children are encouraged to participate!
7:00-8:00pm Alcohol-free dinner near Queenstown Resort College
This is a regular favourite at ANZALS conferences and has been held since 1995 - New Zealand are the current holders of the trophy after a great event in Hobart. As always, the Challenge activity is a closely guarded secret until it happens… but rest assured we will not make you run, sweat, wear fancy dress or embarrass yourselves - although of course, we will not stop you doing those things if you wish!
Date: Thursday 12 December 2019
Time: 3:00-6:00pm (approximately, depending on activity chosen)
In order to facilitate more networking in a fun environment, and allow delegates to experience some of what Queenstown has to offer, we have set aside a few hours in the programme for leisure. Delegates are free to choose from a wide range of activities - some are free and others have a cost associated with them. We have included some 'local's leisure' as well as some more 'tourist' type activities, and we have been able to secure some fabulous bespoke tour options with special pricing for our delegates!
NOTE: Some activities require registration no later than 27 November as they are offering us a special deal or a special tour time. Details are in the conference proceedings, and the first of the delegate emailouts - keep an eye on your inbox!

Venue: The Grille at Eichardt's, 9 Marine Parade
We have pulled out all the stops for the dinner, which will be held at The Grille restaurant at Eichardt's Private Hotel, a stunning venue in an iconic lakefront heritage building. We will enjoy great food (much of it sourced locally), great wine (Central Otago is famous for it, but naturally you can choose not to imbibe) and of course great company!
