Intern in New Zealand Excursions

During the Intern in New Zealand program you will be able to participate in a handful of events arranged by your CISabroad Site Director. There is a weekend day-trip, evening events, and various meetups. We try to mix it up so that everyone can join most of them, no matter what their work schedule is.

Your Site Director will be providing the specifics and activities calendar when you get on site.

  • Please stand by for confirmation from your Site Director about the specific dates of your day-trips. RSVP will be required to participate!
  • Please wait until your onsite orientation to make additional personal travel plans. While different activities are included in your program, we can not schedule them around every participant’s individual travel plans.
 Here is a list of some of the activities we have run in the past. You can expect to see a couple of these occur when you arrive on site, but certain things will be subject to change based on specific event schedule/intern availability/group interest.
  • Day Trip: Sailing Trip on Wellington Harbor
  • Local Excursion: Visiting the Weta Workshop – Although best known for the company’s design and effects work on award-winning film projects, including The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, King Kong, The Chronicles of Narnia, Avatar, District 9, The Adventures of Tintin, Elysium and The Hobbit Trilogy, Weta Workshop now has a creative portfolio that spans a large number of other blockbuster movies and gaming properties including The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Godzilla and DOTA 2.
