Our Services

An enriched, educational and play programme

for children on holiday in Queenstown, New Zealand.

What we do

We offer adventures where children can explore, discover, create, inquire and learn new knowledge in a natural environment.

Our programme includes visiting local areas of interest such as seeing native birds including the kiwi, short ‘bush walks’, children being given the opportunty to play by the water, where they can delight in experiences such as swinging from ropes, climbing trees, building dams, digging in the sand and other everyday play experiences. There are seasonal opportunities too, including playing in the snow!

Returning to base, our educational programme includes experiences such as painting, play dough, clay, music, carpentry, water and stories.

Why Choose True Kiwi Play?


We offer an authentic Kiwi learning experience.

Our philosophy in teaching is one of a ‘hands on’ approach, providing children with experiences in a natural environment and authentic to New Zealand. Through our programme, children can explore, discover, create, inquire and learn new knowledge.

Children have the opportunity to have fun creating their own morning tea and lunch such as making kiwiana pikelets, barbecuing food and toasting marshmallows with a balanced focus on nutritional foods and treats specific to New Zealand.

This is peace of mind for parents that while you are experiencing the adventures of Queenstown, your children are also receiving a quality experience authentic to New Zealand.

Flexible Programme

We have fun, whatever the weather!

We can get quite diverse weather here in Queenstown, so we provide clothing to meet the weather conditions, including sun-hats, beanies, jackets, boots and gloves.

There is also flexibility within the programme for any special activities you would like your children to experience. Please contact us before your appointment if you have any special requests or requirements.
