Its quite appropriate that daylight saving has just finished last Sunday in New Zealand.Down here it is a signal that winter is on its way. Brrrrrr!
However it is being celebrated down in the South Island's world renowned winter resort town of Queenstown. The upside being another edition of the Southern Hemisphere's biggest winter party - the American Express Queenstown Winter Festival.
From June 24 to July 3 this year, 2011, there will be ten days of snow fun,coupled with mountain action, fun and games, glamour, street parties, parades, fireworks, live concerts, comedy and theatre, and will rock the pants off this beautiful little southern ski town.
Got some holidays due? Jump on a plane and come on over to New Zealand in June-July for the winter festival.
