For 3 days over Easter, Lake Wanaka, New Zealand, becomes centre stage to an extravaganza of aerial action with the Warbirds Over Wanaka International Airshow.

The Warbirds Over Wanaka is one of the four top warbirds airshows in the world. See some of the most famous warbirds join forces with the classic aircraft of yesteryear and the modern jets of today.

Grand Pacific Tours is offering two tour options to take you to this exciting event - choose from either the 13 Day South Island Getaway or the 8 Day South Island Escape.

Each tour includes a 3 Day Gold Pass which includes the best seats at the airshow in a grandstand situated directly in front of the runway, exclusive marquee access with CCTV, a souvenir Gold Cap and Badge, airshow programme, an opportunity to walk the flight line and entry to the Warbirds & Wheels Museum.

As well as the three days of airshow action, travellers will see some of New Zealand's most popular attractions and places, including the world famous Tranzalpine Rail Journey, thrilling Queenstown, and, for those on the 13 Day Tour, historic Larnach Castle and a cruise on the Milford Sound.

"Wanaka is nestled on the shores of a pristine blue lake, amongst the mighty peaks of the Southern Alps, creating a natural amphitheatre ideal for an airshow. This is an event no aviation enthusiast should miss," said Managing Director of Grand Pacific Tours, Peter Harding.
