Hi Folks,
It is now only 20 months until the World Daffodil Convention in Canberra and I know that many of you are excited about the trip Down Under. This is an Australian Convention and we in NZ do not want to take the focus away from that. However we are aware that there is interest in a visit to New Zealand as part of the overall programme. As we need to have planning ready to present at Minneapolis we are asking for expressions of interest for what we may have to offer.
It seems that there are four options being discussed.

A) Visit North Island NZ – Convention – NSW/ Tasmania

B) Australia – Convention – Australia

C) NSW/ Tasmania – Convention – South Island NZ

D) North Island – Convention – South Island

If you are interested in joining an organized tour for any of the New Zealand parts indicated above please advise me asap. Indicate option A, C or D to my personal e-mail address or any enquiries also to me.
David Adams

    Dear David
    Option A or C (although I would have to check the difference in flights from UK to NZ vs Aus)
    Best wishes
