Gareth Morgan to speak at Visit Ruapehu's Visitor's Guide Release

Posted on Saturday, 9 February 2013

Visit Ruapehu will launch its new regional Visitor Guide on the 12th of February with Gareth Morgan attending as Guest Speaker.

The new Ruapehu, Tongariro National Park and the Whanganui River visitor information DLE booklet consists of 72 pages with a fold out regional map in the centre.  The opening story about a mighty fish, a supreme mountain and a river of tears sets the scene as references to history, nature and landscape are made throughout the guide.

Stunning imagery taken of Tongariro National Park, Whanganui National Park and the five pillars Visit Ruapehu markets; hiking, biking, river, snow and events, showcase the outstanding attractions the Ruapehu region has to offer both domestic and international visitors.

Following feedback received by the Visit Ruapehu team from the previous visitor guide (Ruapehu Chosen Pathways, in circulation since 2009), the new version has been segmented according to geographical location within the Ruapehu District.  The ‘Forgotten World’ section describes Taumarunui, Ongarue and Ohura in the north, while gateways to Tongariro and Whanganui National Parks describe the southern Ruapehu towns, villages and activities.

Guest Speaker and businessman, economist and public commentator Gareth Morgan is father of Sam Morgan and was an early TradeMe investor and director. He is a passionate conservationist and recently made headlines following an interview with Campbell Live about reducing the number of cats in New Zealand.

During his presentation, Morgan will discuss how tourism, farming and conservation can work together to increase the economic prospects for the Ruapehu region.

The event will be held at The Chateau Tongariro at 5.30pm. RSVP’s are required. Email: sandy@visitruapehu.com or phone 021 895 346.
