Birthday bash: Mon Aug 13 - Queenstown


Breakfast kick-started its 10th birthday celebrations at Steamer Wharf in Queenstown - the adventure capital of the world.

We spoke to mayor of Queenstown Clive Geddes about the town's amazing growth.

Two of Queenstown's top snow sportswomen came along for the birthday ride - former Olympic skier Erika McLeod and Olympic snowboarder Julianne Bray.

Breakfast reporter Jack Tame took the plunge, bungy jumping from a helicopter live on the show.

Cure Kids kindly provided the Breakfast team, and viewers that braved the cold, with a warm breakfast. The charity raises around $5 million a year for research into children's life threatening illnesses. CEO Kaye Parker does it all from Queenstown.

We took a look back at some of the highlights of the Breakfast programme over the last 10 years and spoke to to one of the original Breakfast presenters Susan Wood.

Local daredevil Chuck Berry dropped in to tell us about making a living as an adventurer in Queenstown.

The head of Destination Queenstown David Kennedy spoke about a new threat to the city's tourism industry from European rivals who claim a New Zealand holiday is far more threatening to the environment because of the air miles involved.

And speaking of the environment, we found out why the award-winning Heritage Queenstown Hotel is Queenstown's most environmentally friendly accommodation.

We wrapped the show speakign with Scoop - editor at large of the local Queenstown rag.
