A post-Covid Queenstown workforce has provided jobs for more than 50 unemployed tourism workers and community benefits for thousands.

The Tourism Workforce Alliance has created new bike trails, upgraded reserves and removed wilding pines over the past four months.

The project was spearheaded by Bungy NZ and provided employment for local residents from various tourism organisations who had lost their jobs or were on reduced hours.
