We have been to NZ 7 times to date to visit our daughter, son in law and granddaughter and simple love the country๐Ÿ˜! But as we get older and our funds with pension etc are not so great we would not be able to visit White Island and have to use the money to visit family. We have always wanted to visit and to take our granddaughter with us would be the cherry on the cake๐Ÿ˜‰

Rosie Heery is coming to NZ from Ireland ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ช and this would be the opportunity of a lifetime. A real live volcano ๐ŸŒ‹ What a buzz to tell Everyone in Ireland ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ชโค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ๐ŸŒ‹๐ŸŒ‹๐ŸŒ‹๐ŸŒ‹๐ŸŒ‹๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ช

Paul Davis we would love to win this amazing adventure as both of us are true Tauranganonians, born and bred and sadly have never visited our neighbouring mighty volcano and would cherish this amazing opportunity . ๐Ÿ˜™#whiteislandtours

#whiteislandtours i would love to win this prize, me hubby and my dad have always wanted to go, would be the bees knees to win this fabulous prize. The 2 kids could tag along aswell since it's a family prize package, give them an experience they will never forget, dad would have to pay for his own if he comes hehe

I would love to win this to take my dad and my eldest son - he is obsessed with volcanoes and my dad is a keen science teacher who had visited volcanoes in both Hawaii and Vanuatu. They would absolutely love to win this!

I've spent so much time travelling internationally that it's time to cross some of NZ off my bucket list. White Island has always been on my bucket list #whiteislandtours White Island Tours - Volcano Adventure Tours, New Zealand

"White island tours" I would love to go and take my boys to see an active volcano in a controlled setting. What an amazing opportunity. Thanks for running the competition.

Just to experience what we have in our own backyard is enough for me seems a waste to live in whakatane but be so far from a different place ya know #whiteislandtours

I love to go and see it blow, It's something quite unique! And with #whiteislandtours showing the way, I'll find the true Volcanic adventure that I seek! ๐ŸŒ‹

My husband and I would love to take our two older kids. Our son is fascinated by volcanoes and our daughter woul love it too

@whiteislandtours what an opportunity to see something in our own backyard! Something the kids would never forget! ๐ŸŒ‹๐ŸŒ‹๐ŸŒ‹

Born and bred in WHK! But never been on White Island. Keen to show the family one of our planets amazing sights.. ๐ŸŒ‹ White Island Tours - Volcano Adventure Tours, New Zealand

My 7 yr old loves volcanoes, would be awesome to take him back to my hometown and show him a real one!!

Would love to visit White Island when we visit NZ next year, from the uk.I would bring my cousins.#whiteislandtours

I am coming over to NZ from Australia with my 2 girls and I want them to experience a natural wonder which is on the top of our list to do. Please pick me ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ๐ŸŒ‹

Just wow!!! Who wouldnt want to go there!!!! Looks amazing and....its on my bucket list!!!๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ท๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

Just to visit what is so amazing so close and yet so far.

Would love to win this so my kids could see white Island up close and personal fingers crossed #whiteislandtours

That would be awesome! Heard it’s a really cool trip๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

Because we fly over 25 hours to visit your very beautiful country in the footsteps of Abel Tasman and James Cook . Aotearoa and white volcano ๐Ÿ˜˜

I would love to take the family for a trip to White Island, my son would love to see a volcano up close.

On Wednesday we officially opened Vessel Works, Tauranga's new marine servicing hub. The site and the travel-lift were blessed in the morning by Ngai Tamarawaho, and stakeholders joined in for a celebration in the evening. They got to see Hikinui, 'big lift', in action as the mayor took the mobile vessel-hoist for a spin. The start of an exciting operation which will bring economic development opportunities to the city and the region! Here are some pictures of the day. There are still a few spots left next week if you'd like to see the precinct for yourselves, so book now at www.surveymonkey.com/r/marineprecinct_tours ... See MoreSee Less

Exciting day today โ€“ we lifted a 47m, 315t superyacht at the marine precinct. A great opportunity to put our 350t travel-lift through its paces, while allowing the owner to get urgent maintenance done right here in Tauranga. This is the largest of four test-lifts weโ€™ve done since assembling the machine. Next step: to give it a final stress-test with a 400t commissioning lift later this month. Weโ€™re looking forward to opening the machine for bookings soon Tauranga City Council ... See MoreSee Less

It's all go! After weeks of preparation we're pouring the first 1,175 tonnes of concrete to build the hardstand at the Tauranga Harbour Marine Precinct. This is the pavement where boats of up to 350 tonnes will be stored once theyโ€™re lifted out of the water by the precinctโ€™s vessel-hoist. The hardstand is designed to cope with loads of up to 500 tonnes. A massive piece of work and an exciting milestone reached today! ... See MoreSee Less

Bethlehem College Year 11 Economics students are using the Tauranga City Council Marine Precinct as a case study to analyse interdependence in the economy and the circular flow of goods, services and money around the economy. What will the impacts of the Marine Precinct project be?
This morning Project Director Phil Wardale gave students a run-down of the project to date, to get the ball rolling. Looking forward to hearing about the result!

Another major milestone reached for the Marine Precinct! Today we signed the purchase agreement with Cimolai Technology for our future vessel hoist (travel-lift), the soon to be largest-capacity hoist in New Zealand.The Tauranga Harbour Marine will be home to New Zealand's largest-capacity mobile vessel hoist when it opens for business mid next year. This means businesses in the precinct will be able to lift, move and store some of the larger commercial fishing and work boats from the region and further afield, and attract catamaran vessels such as inner-harbour fast ferries.
