I personally think this is brilliant for the Tourism Industry.
At Eden Park Bed and Breakfast we are involved in the accommodation sector. We promote activities and tours to guests traveling within Auckland and New Zealand.
To be able to offer another activity that keeps travelers within Auckland offers spin offs to other tourism operators . We may even have to go out for a trip ourselves when the time allows ……
