Ziptrek Ecotours is excited to announce the return of its popular Locals’ Day event.

Southern Lakes and Central Otago residents are invited to experience the exhilaration of zipping through the trees, high above Queenstown on Sunday 12 November, with 50% of ticket sales going to charity.

This year, Ziptrek is proud to support local giving platform, Love Queenstown, as the recipient of its annual community fundraiser. Half of all Locals’ Day ticket sales will be donated to the Love Queenstown fund to support climate, conservation and biodiversity projects.

Locals can join in on the ziplining fun from 10am with departures scheduled from the Ziptrek Treehouse every ten minutes. 

Ziptrek are offering locals the chance to zip four ziplines for only $60 per person or zip five ziplines, plant a tree and listen to our treetop DJ for $80 per person*! 

Love the environment and want to give back? The $80 tickets run during the 3 - 4pm time slots and are limited so get in there quick!

* Ticket price for an additional zipline and tree planting. You'll get a complimentary Canyon beer or soft drink to sip on too.

Previous locals events held by the multi-award-winning Queenstown operator have raised over $100,000 to date and supported a range of community groups including, Lakes Family Centre, Youth Booth, Wakatipu Search & Rescue, Kiwi Birdlife Park, St Johns Ambulance, Queenstown Scouts, Wakatipu Reforestation Trust, Branches Charitable Trust and most recently Sustainable Queenstown.

Ziptrek Ecotours Executive Director, Trent Yeo, says, “We’re excited to offer Queenstown locals a special rate on Sunday 12 November and the opportunity to help regenerate and restore our natural place through Love Queenstown community fund. As Queenstown’s first carbon-neutral tourism business, Ziptrek is continually working to reduce our carbon footprint and supporting local initiatives, like Love Queenstown, that give back to the environment.”
