  • Rafting

    Queenstown Sports & Outdoors

    For the last section through the tunnel, we overshoot the entrance, and have to rock climb back to a suitable spot. We almost end up going over a very evil rapid called The Mother-in-law.

Being, also, a strong university region with Otago University, the team has a strong and very loyal following of students. Many out of town students become Otago supporters and remain such for the rest of their lives!!
