TV3, DomPost and NZ Herald in The Trench

The Quinn’s Post Trench Experience (a.k.a The Trench) opened on 14 April.

A world-first sensory experience created by Sir Peter Jackson’s team, The Trench gives us a glimpse of wartime life. Visitors have been flooding through the door to experience what our troops in Gallipoli lived through, back in 1915.

“It was mind blowing, so real.  A unique experience that gives me an idea of what our boys went through.”

— Mark, Whangarei

Live moment to moment, as the ANZAC troops did in the trenches at Gallipoli, only a bomb’s throw away from the Turks. In this unique re-creation of Quinn’s Post, encounter the noise, the explosions, the stench, the confined environment those men had to deal with during the ferocious struggle between opposing forces. At times confronting, this will be an experience like no other!

National media covered the opening. Please see Sir Peter Jackson’s interview on TV3, or the articles and videos at Stuff, and NZ Herald.

The Trench Experience may be booked as a stand-alone option, however, our combo deal is the best way to experience The Great War Exhibition and Quinn’s Post Trench Experience. Our combo includes admission, a 45-minute guided tour from one of our knowledgeable guides and the 30-minute sensory experience within The Trench.
