Milford push into Queenstown


Milford Sound Red Boats will open an information and booking office on Queenstown’s Shotover Street in early May in the revamped Plaza Arcade building.

Milford Sound Red Boats, bought six months ago by Dunedin-based Skeggs Group, operates tourist attractions in Milford including cruises, the Mitre Deep underwater observatory and the Blue Duck Cafe and Bar.

Though primarily Milford-focused, the outlet – manned by up to seven staff – will also sell other local activities.

The office will be run in conjunction with coach operator InterCity Group.
