Special Events - Locations

Real Journeys makes it easy to arrange a quality event in some of the world’s most iconic locations.

With operations in Queenstown, Fiordland and Stewart Island, Real Journeys wants to share this very special part of the world with you.

TSS Earnslaw Vintage Steamship, Queenstown

Travel on Queenstown’s vintage steamship TSS Earnslaw.  Launched in 1912, the TSS Earnslaw is a coal-fired passenger-carrying vessel, which makes several trips daily across Lake Wakatipu to Walter Peak High Country Farm. The ship’s private saloon and Fo’c’sle Gallery are excellent venues.  Full catering and bar facilities available on board.

Walter Peak High Country Farm, Queenstown

On the western shores of Lake Wakatipu, Walter Peak High Country Farm is a delightful venue accessible from Queenstown on the TSS Earnslaw, smaller charter vessels or scenic flights. The Colonel’s Homestead Restaurant and terrace provides the perfect lakeside setting for black tie dinners and themed evenings for 25 to 275 people.

Doubtful Sound

Doubtful Sound is an immense remote fiord known for its fur seals and Bottlenose dolphins which are frequently seen alongside our vessels.  Join a daytime cruise to the most magnificent parts.  Take an overnight cruise and experience the fiord by day and night, explore by kayak, try star gazing and next morning see the sun rise.

Te Anau

The Te Anau Glowworm Caves are at least 12,000 years old and consist of a magical underground world of sculpted rock and waterfalls. Located on the western shores of Lake Te Anau, a visit to the caves is a perfect two-hour excursion, culminating in a visit to the magical glowworm grotto.

Stewart Island

Stewart Island (Rakiura – “land of the glowing skies”) is New Zealand’s third island. Its densely forested hills and untouched coastline make it a haven for native marine and birdlife.  Whether a day trip, or a extended visit, we can take you from Bluff to Stewart Island on our modern ferry and provide you with a complete island itinerary.


What do you have in mind for your special day?  Have you considered a Milford Sound cruise and album shots of the waterfall, or a helicopter flight to Walter Peak and the beautiful lakeside gardens.  Give us a call to discuss.
