Lara Bingle used to be a ‘Kiwi Sceptic’. She’s said in the past, “New Zealand was never a place that was on my travelling radar, I would always consider Europe or the USA Alps for a Winter holiday.” Well, Air New Zealand were determined to change her mind! They flew the model-turned-businesswoman to the snowy mountains of Queenstown, where her guide, Kiwi local Hayley Holt, took her snowboarding on Coronet Peak and on a helicopter ride to the back bowls of Wanaka. They even spent a night inside a snow cave!
Experiencing the beauty of New Zealand’s Winter offerings changed Lara’s perception of our neighbouring country, and she’s since said, “My attitude has completely changed. I fell in love with New Zealand. I would love to be living the laid back New Zealand lifestyle. I really got an opportunity to live the dream during my time in Queenstown.”
