In the early '80s a young Aussie couple skipped a winter season and jumped the ditch for a holiday in New Zealand.

They decided to come back for a winter in Wanaka... and never left.

Bruce and Stacey Wells have called Cardrona home for almost 40 years. They've worked here, played here and raised a family here. This is the story of that young Aussie couple, their 4 sons and the mountain that they call home.
