SAME LOCATION, NEW OWNERS: Jane and Peter Race outside the Twizel Holiday Park, which they have been sprucing up for the past 12 months.

Twizel Holiday Park (formerly Parkland Alpine Tourist Park) is under new ownership.

Peter and Jane Race are well known in the Mackenzie district having previously owned The Fairlie Hotel and the Top Hut Bar and Bistro in Twizel.

Mr Race, a former New Zealand shearing representative, has been a shearer and contractor in the Mackenzie Basin for more than 30 years. He said they had spent the previous 12 months rebranding, marketing and sprucing up the park, which offers a wide range of accommodation from power and tent sites to self-contained cottages.
