The locals love the Toyota Hilux. It has been the regions top selling new vehicle for a very long time. There is a reason for that. We live in a demanding area, and the vehicles we need to use on the land need to be tough enough to cope. The Toyota Hilux has proved time and time again that it is, that is why the companies that rely on it keep coming back. Click here to learn more about the all new 2016 Toyota Hilux. 

The Brook Sanctuary Campaign office is open for business

Written by Media Manager.

The new campaign office space nestled into the top level of the Bowater Honda showroom is open for business as the team goes about planning the launch of the "Get behind the fence" campaign.

The Brook Sanctuary team has set about making in roads into the total funds needed to be raised to get the Brook Sanctuary's major project, the 14km long Predator Proof Fence, closer to completion. This fence is at the heart of the campaign to bring nature back to the Nelson region, and with an "inland island' established it is predicted that we could soon all hear again birdsong long since departed from the area. The beauty of this project is that it is all happening just minutes away from the city.

The new Campaign Office in the heart of downtown Nelson has certainly lifted the accessibility of this wonderful local project, and as time goes by, hopefully it makes it a little easier to organise the funds and donations rolling in.

There will of course be an exciting event in the near future to "officially" launch both the new campaign space and also the launch the drive for donations to "Get behind the fence".

There is adventure in everyone.

We invite you to come & hear all about it from a true adventure sport superstar.

RAV evening with nathn Faavae

2012 World Adventure Race Champion & local lad Nathan Faavae will join us for this very special event, the launch of the new 2013 Toyota RAV4.

We would like to personally invite you to join us at Bowater Toyota on Friday 19th April from 5pm for some drinks and nibbles as we launch the all new, 4th generation Toyota RAV4. Hear what Nathan has to say about his breathtaking adventures over the years from 6pm. For many of us he needs no introduction, and we are very fortunate to have nabbed him fresh off the plane from a race in China a couple of days before as he shoots through to his 2013 training base in Queenstown. It will be a great night, full of inspiration and of course the chance to get an inside look at the equally adventurous remodelled Toyota RAV4.

Nathan Faavae is a world leading Adventure Race athlete, a champion at the top of his field and a multi-sport icon. Nathan is also involved with outdoor education and passionate about our region, adventure tourism and his family, as well as being a great speaker and a genuinely nice guy. It is a treat to have him here, so make sure you don't miss this opportunity!

Handy tips to make your journey safer and stress free

As Kiwis make the most of the Easter break - and the continuing daylight savings - our roads will be busy as we head out of town to the beach, bach, camp ground and the bush.

But before you stockpile your hot cross buns and Easter eggs, make sure that both your vehicle and you are ready for the driving you'll be doing next weekend.
