Meet the People - 10

Photo supplied.
Another in the Series Meet the People - Ordinary and Extraordinary New Zealanders doing Interesting Things - Mark Rogers is passionate about his hometown, Wellington. His enthusiasm doesn’t surprise me; it’s my favourite New Zealand city too. Having travelled to many interesting countries, Mark always returned home believing that Wellington had a natural environment that matched – and even surpassed - anything he had seen on his international travels. So, determined to bring our capital city out of the ‘unknown’ and put it firmly on the tourism trail, Mark side-stepped his career in project management and, after almost a year of research, training and product development, set up Flat Earth Tours. After six years, Flat Earth is now one of Wellington’s premium tour companies offering close to a dozen unique experiences. Think arts, Maori treasures, architecture, industrial sculptures, leading galleries, wine trails, The Weta Cave, Lord of the Rings locations and much more. Mark’s tours are among the best small tours in the country. www.flatearth.co.nz
