The live performance was broadcast into the homes of Sunrise viewers across Australia, with more to come from Sunrise tomorrow (Friday 20 June) as they film dance group Justice Crew and New Zealand Grammy Award winner Lorde from Coronet Peak.

Sixty Sunrise viewers and crew were treated to breakfast at Novotel Queenstown Lakeside and enjoyed watching the live show from the hotel’s pop-up tent with winter warming hot chocolates and barista coffee.

The celebrations are set to continue tonight with Novotel hosting an exclusive dinner with dancing and trivia for the Sunrise viewers, TV hosts David Koch, Samantha Armytage, Mark Beretta, Natalie Barr, Edwina Bartholomew and Tourism New Zealand.

During their Queenstown visit, Sunrise viewers will also visit the remote Skippers Canyon, enjoy a signature lunch at Amisfield Winery & Bistro overlooking Lake Hayes and sip cocktails surrounded by over 18 tonnes of ice architecture at Minus 5 ICEBAR.

The Queenstown Winter Festival kicks off on Friday night from 5.30pm with all the activities including local music, food stalls and fireworks just a short walk from Novotel Queenstown Lakeside in Earnslaw Park.
