Flying fox firm sends gutsy pensioner flying


You’re never too old to fly – not in Queenstown anyway. 

At 89, gutsy pensioner Raby Oxenham, of Tauranga, is among the oldest clients to try Queenstown’s giant flying fox run by Ziptrek Ecotours. 

Oxenham says she particularly enjoyed the spectacular view out to The Remarkables and Lake Wakatipu during her refreshing ride today (Wednesday). 

Ziptrek Ecotours director Trent Yeo says: “The four-line Moa Tour is perfectly suited for elder or younger zippers looking for an exhilarating new view of Queenstown.”
