About Us

Kia Ora,

Thank you for visiting our website.

Mike and Annemarie Gallagher own a couple of motels in Rotorua. Over the years we became frustrated with guests leaving the Accommodation establishments feeling like they are not done with Rotorua. Many guests arrive to Rotorua and simply don’t realise how much there is to do here in our beautiful district, so our challenge is “How can we get that message out there” before people make travel plans. One or two days is not enough. From our experience of sitting behind the motel desk and helping guests plan their days, we have discovered that 4 night minimum is the length of time we recommend tourists stay in our wonderful district.

So, the team put their thinking caps on and came up a voucher website solution which lists some of the main tourist attractions but also those smaller more unique attractions that you did not realise exist. Time frames are listed and given our recent events some Attractions have an updated COVID19 message to update you on sudden changes.

We wanted to promote Rotorua from a slightly different angle by selling the district as a “Gift”. Everybody has birthdays, anniversaries, special employees you want to reward, so send them to us (Rotorua) for that special experience and life lasting memories, don’t buy stuff!

Visiting a tourist destination can be expensive so we have included some great local free activities including local tips to help stretch out that budget.

You also have the ability to purchase the vouchers for yourself. Pre-purchasing has become common practice, it means everything is paid for before you travel so great for budgeting and in this new COVID world, the more contactless payments the better. is a local product so no income or taxes are lost to offshore wealthy conglomerates. Supporting local in New Zealand is key.

We thank you for supporting our businesses and locals here in Rotorua.
