Indoor Skirmish - Paintball Sports


Indoor Skirmish Paintball Sports is exactly what you have been waiting for, the ultimate adrenalin rush game. Your heart is pounding, the adrenalin is flowing like mad, your hands are sweating, the siren goes off and the music starts to pound. You run like crazy to the first barricade and stop, your heart is still pounding like crazy and you look around, suddenly you see someone moving toward you. You pop up and go to take a shot and thump, all you see through your mask is pink, you have been tagged. You are temporarily out. That's Australia's only Indoor Skirmish, the most exciting game. The urban battlefield is a setting of nightmares; a vast cavernous expanse filled with sandbag bunkers, 44-gallon drums and gutted car bodies.

Queenstown: Events

Zukerman in Concert - Special Event


In the hands of a master, the violin weeps, warbles and soars.

One of the greatest musicians of our era, Pinchas Zukerman, weaves time and sound, passion and vision together to create an experience of undiluted glory.

Apropos of this, the evening's program is penned by the greatest composers of the preceding eras. George Enescu, one of the early 20th century's most important violinists and composers, contributes his nobly beautiful and lyrical Ballade, while Beethoven's Triple Concerto - a grand t?te-?-t?te - opens a dialogue between Zukerman, cellist Amanda Forsyth and pianist Angela Cheng, living musical treasures in their own rights. Finally, the orchestra itself demands the limelight in Brahms's magnificent, monumental first symphony.

Bookings through Bass.
