Planning is well underway for the 2015 Festival and you can see the all new programme for 2015 under our walks section. Some walks booked out very quickly last festival, so make sure you register early. We look forward to seeing you out and about during Festival 2015!
Talking of walks booking out early!!!!! Both the Mayor Island Excursion and the Mudflat Challenge are fully booked. We are still taking names for a waiting list so continue to register and the walk coordinator will be in touch.
Congratulations to Colin Hallett - one of our experienced guides in the Te Aroha area. Colin was awarded the Queens Service Medal in the New Years Honours List. Congratulations Colin.
The best way to keep up to date is to register for our newsletter below.Costs
We do try and keep costs to a donation, this is appreciated to help meet the costs associated with the festival. Some trips involve additional costs and these are always kept to a minimum.
Each year we encourage walkers to take their cameras with them and capture the spirit of the festival, and this year is no exception - but we are increasing our categories for you!
Category 1 - "Catching the Action"
Category 2 - "Where Am I?"
Category 3 - "Selfie with Someone Elsie"
Category 4 - "Beauty Not Only in the Eye of the Beholder"
Each category will have a first prize of $50. So take your camera/phone and get snapping. Details to enter your pics will be posted a little closer to the festival start date.
All walkers in 2015 will enter a prize draw to win great prizes.
