Opening 29th of June and throughout July, Ayrburn is proud to unveil its boldest move yet, with a 'Christmas Wonderland' experience.

The grounds will be transformed into a winter wonderland, complete with an ice skating rink, magical Christmas decorations and dazzling light displays. As snow falls, this will be a unique opportunity for locals and tourists to experience the magic of the holidays in the heart of New Zealand winter.

For the very first time, visitors to Ayrburn’s Christmas Wonderland will be treated to an array of enchanting experiences that blend the world’s favourite white Christmas activities. Inspired by the iconic light displays of Oxford Street, and the cozy charm of European après-ski culture, the month will see a fusion of festive traditions from around the globe.
