Sergeant Kate Pirovano said the female travelers were spotted urinating about 12.30am, and promptly arrested.

However, they pleaded that they did not believe they were doing anything wrong, as they ”were allowed to do it at home,” Ms Pirovano said.

The women were released with a pre-charge warning.

”We get a lot of travelers through Queenstown, and pleading that they might be able to do something at home does not mean they can break laws in New Zealand – travelers need to educate themselves on local laws.”
