Taonga Trails App


Developed by 26 young learners, aged 10–13, the Taonga Trails app was created to enhance your experience on the Kelvin Peninsula Loop Trail, whilst promoting the trail and encouraging people to support for Queenstown Trails Trust. 


All the content in the app was curated by the Liger Leadership Academy Discovery Club students, from the imagery to the interviews and even the nature sound recordings. 

To experience the Kelvin Heights Loop Trail in a new light, simply download the app, choose one of the four tours, pop in your headphones and head off down the track to discover the artistic, historic, and natural treasures of the trail. When you reach each point of interest your “tour guide” will automatically start speaking to you.
