A boil water is in place for businesses and properties across Queenstown following a number of confirmed local cases of illness caused by the protozoa, cryptosporidium. This affects all properties serviced by the Council’s Queenstown supply including Frankton, Quail Rise and Tucker Beach Rd, Kelvin Heights and Hanley’s Farm. Read more here.

From Monday 18 September there will be no parking available directly outside the Gorge Road Council office due to construction activity associated with the Town Centre Arterial Road. Our Gorge Road Council office will be open as usual. But if you’d prefer, you can make use of our online services via our website or give us a call on 03 441 0499.

The state of local emergency in Queenstown, originally declared on Friday morning after a severe weather event, has been lifted. However, some restrictions will remain in place to protect public safety as the focus turns to recovery. Full information here.

"Exercise not only changes your body, it changes your mind, your attitude, and your mood."

Natalie's passion for the fitness industry started when she was young trying to keep up with her 3 older brothers. This developed further in her teenage years when training for the Youth Olympics as rower. Training alongside many great exercise professionals inspired Natalie to study exercise physiology.

Fast track 11 years which have been spent working in the health & fitness industry, of which 8 have been personal training. Through-out this time Natalie helped many clients achieve their goals, from, running marathons, losing weight, to returning to exercise after injury. Post study she also successfully self-coached herself in many endurance events such as Coast to Coast, RedBull Defiance, Routeburn Classic, Motatapu Ultra marathon, and  Enduro Mountain bike races. Now as a mother, she understands the importance of exercise and how to fit it in our busy schedules.

Natalie's goal is for everyone to have the fitness they need to achieve what they want out of life, be it keeping up with the kids or completing a marathon. Come say hello when you’re next in the gym.
