On your marks boomers. Your adventure trip to New Zealand awaits. The new Silver Foxes and Foxettes tour is aimed at baby boomers who want to live for the moment and #saysorrylater. Check out the social media campaign, which encourages you to SKI (Spend the Kids’ Inheritance). The ringleader of the new AAT Kings tour is actor Roy Billing (pictured), a proud Kiwi, Underbelly and Jack Irish star and 2015 recipient of the Medal of the Order of Australia. Billing helps mix New Zealand’s heady beauty and fine tables with a dash of jet boating or heli-wine tasting. The 10-day tours start in Billing’s hometown, Auckland, then on to Rotorua for a hangi feast before heading to the South Island’s Christchurch, Franz Josef Glacier and Queenstown. Tours depart from September 13, 2015 to May 22, 2016 and cost from $3795 a person, twin share. Phone 131 415, see helloworld.com.au/instore/silverfox.
