    Alert level two woes for our tourism epicentre

    Alert level two woes for our tourism epicentre


    The cancellation of the Motatapu race is the latest in a long line of blows for the Queenstown Lakes District in the era pf Covid-19.

    The multisport event draws hundreds of competitors and their supporters to the region each year.

    Queenstown Chamber of Commerce chief Ruth Stokes says the district is desperately hoping for a swift return to alert level one.

    She says large events are vital to the district at a time like this.

    Stokes says many will be hoping a Crowded House concert can still go ahead next weekend.
