The Grand Exchange

Mar 22, 2019

The rivalry between Queenstown and Wanaka goes all the way back to the days when the two towns were first established. But is it healthy, friendly competition or a waste of valuable energy over trivial differences?

In this light but insightful documentary, shot by the students from Queenstown's Wakatipu High School and Wanaka's Mount Aspiring College, they each cross the Crown Range to visit The Other Side. It's The Grand Exchange.



Huge thanks to the teams that made The Grand Exchange possible.
