To finish 2017 on a high, our Christchurch and Auckland staff and partners were invited to attend an action-packed day at Terrace Downs in Canterbury.
Early afternoon on Saturday 9th December, we jumped onboard a bus in central Christchurch, to be transported to the Rakaia Gorge for a fun-filled 30 minute jet boat ride. Discovery Jet treated our team to a variety of twists and turns on the river, with a backdrop of stunning high country scenery.
Many in our group chose the option to be dropped off upriver, to walk back along the Rakaia Walkway. It was a picturesque walk which took about 1 1/2 hours through bush, with scenic lookout points to the mountains and river.
Some team members preferred to play nine holes of golf at Terrace Downs, thankfully the weather held off just long enough for an enjoyable afternoon of golf.
After a quick freshen up, everyone came back together for drinks, followed by a delicious Christmas-themed dinner.
Thanks to our social non-club for organising this amazing day out for our team, it really was a day to remember!
