Tourism has been the talk of the town over the past few days, thanks to TRENZ 2015 in Rotorua (May 17-20). Several important announcements were made by industry leaders and Prime Minister John Key also made a speech.

ITC short course students get a taste of adventure with Kawarau Jet Boats!

The International Travel College (ITC) recently delivered a short course in one of the North Island’s most popular tourist hubs, Rotorua.
