Journey to the future


How we explore the world has suddenly flipped. Traditional travel has suddenly been severely restricted, however new forms of travel are also appearing. Join us for a lunch with ARA Journey’s Founder, Amber Taylor, to learn more about how digital technology is changing the way we travel. Ara Journeys combines augmented reality (AR), mixed reality (MR) and gaming technologies to encourage and enhance cultural (re)connection with indigenous knowledge and language.

Come and join us for lunch and explore Wānaka through the eyes of Manu. An augmented reality character that takes you on a journey using the Maramataka (Māori Lunar Calendar).

Tickets include a delicious bowl of hot soup from Big Fig to keep you nourished for the afternoon!
