Walk­ing in the Bay of Is­lands

Central Leader - - YOUR PAPER, YOUR PLACE - STAFF RE­PORTER

The Bay of Is­lands is beck­on­ing you to visit next month for a Walk­ing Week­end.

This iconic North­land week­end gives you 18 scenic walks to choose from, with lo­cal guides to en­sure you have the best pos­si­ble ex­pe­ri­ence.

We have your chance to win an es­cape from the ev­ery­day hus­tle and bus­tle with a Walk­ing Week­end pack­age for two val­ued at $640.

It in­cludes two tick­ets for the Urupuka­puka Island walk, a twonight stay at Rus­sell Orongo Bay Hol­i­day Park, and two tick­ets for Fullers’ Hole in the Rock Dol­phin Cruise.

Ex­pe­ri­ence this stun­ning part of North­land by soak­ing up its beau­ti­ful scenery, cul­ture and his­tory.

Walk­ing Week­end event or­gan­iser Steph God­siff says it came about be­cause she re­alised peo­ple weren’t ex­pe­ri­enc­ing the real beauty of the Bay of Is­lands.

‘‘There are so many stun­ning walks in the area that peo­ple weren’t get­ting to and ex­pe­ri­enc­ing ... so we set up a trust and the Walk­ing Week­end was formed.’’

The fourth an­nual event is held on Oc­to­ber 7-9.

To en­ter, go to the Cen­tral Leader page on neigh­bourly.co.nz and ‘‘like’’ the Bay of Is­lands Walk­ing Week­end Give­away post. We will draw the win­ners on Wed­nes­day, Septem­ber 28.

Good luck!

You and one other could be ex­plor­ing the Bay of Is­lands on foot this spring.
