That Wanaka Tree
It started life as a fence post made of willow put up by a farmer and grew to become one of the most photographed trees in the world. It survived flooding and human damage over the years. The Wanaka locals see it as a symbol of resilience and part of their community. In times such as these - we say the real resilience of Wanaka lies in that wonderful community and beautiful lakeside people. Kia kaha Aotearoa xx

Richard Pearse, First to Fly.
This Kiwi farmer/genius built and flew the first ‘heavier than air’ aircraft to take off under its own power, on 31 March 1903 in Timaru. The bamboo and scrap- metal plane flew about 140 metres before it crashed into a gorse bush. Unfortunately, the flight was poorly documented, allowing the Wright Brothers to claim the first flight 9 months later on 17 Dec 1903.
