Another good southland School from Gore didn't let snowy conditions deter them from visiting the Lakes District Museum this morning. With the sun shining this afternoon, you would never believe that we could see snow flurries through the museum conference room windows this morning.

The year 13 students listened in to our University style presentation on the development of tourism in Queenstown and the Lakes District. A highlight of the talk for the students was learning about the different adventure based activities which have developed in the last 30 or so years. Technology has made a huge impact on tourism in Queenstown. Not only with the internet which provides better access to information and bookings, but also the improvements in technology has impacted with machinery to help create some of our fantastic adventure based tourist attractions. Attractions such as jet boating, bungy jumping, canyon swing, and heli-skiing, would not be available if it was not for the advancements in technology!

What else could potentially affect the tourism industry in Queenstown and worldwide?
