With a population of only 5 million it’s no surprise that New Zealand is one of the quietest and most tranquil countries in the world; the only sounds you’ll find in the countryside here are the scenic and mountainous fiord-like inlets that welcome cruise ships from around the world!

But this tranquility will be temporarily shattered over Easter 2020 for three days when the Warbirds Over Wanaka International Airshow comes to town. This extravaganza of high-octane aviation excitement, firmly established as one of the world’s “must do” Warbirds airshows, will fill the skies with the sounds of Jukas, Spitfires, Mustangs, Messerschmitts, helicopters and even F-16s!

Experience all the excitement of this internationally renowned airshow, plus a fully escorted coach tour, taking in the scenic beauty of New Zealand, with a Grand Pacific Tours escorted tour. Each includes a 3 Day Gold Pass to the event.

The 3 Day Gold Pass gives you the best seats at the Airshow in a grandstand situated directly in front of the runway. Seats are elevated for unobstructed viewing, and celebrity pilots will be mingling. You will also have the opportunity to walk down the aircraft flight line!
