Join Vanessa Wards, Director & Guide at Kiwiness Tours, as she takes us on a beautiful journey of owning a business! Born and bred on the Matakana coast, Vanessa (aka Ness) talks to Linda about her Kiwi bird spotting tours at Tawharanui Peninsula and the wine tasting tours she’s created in the region.“I grew up at Tawharanui Regional Park, as my dad is the ranger there. This area is so beautiful so I started offering a range of tours, leveraging off the little wine trail we have here on the Matakana Coast,” says Ness. “By night I go out to the Tawharanui Peninsula and do three-hour Kiwi-spotting tours.  I just love it.” Ness started her business two years ago after returning home to the area following six years in Queenstown, where she worked as a tour and hiking guide.
