James Scott and Videographer Dean Trolle have combined to create the most amazing and stunning videography of South Westland. From the White Herons of the Waitangiroto Nature Reserve to the wildlife of Open Bay Islands off the coast of Haast. Some unbelievable scenery exists beyond Haast to the Cascade with the Red Hills captured in their unique stand out colour so vastly different from their surrounding landscape. Westland Wonderland is the new masterpiece to adorn the huge wide screen of the Alpine Adventure Centre movie theatre at Franz Josef. Fox & Franz Heliservices is an experienced helicopter flightseeing company.
