Raewyn and I know and love, is hugely satisfying.”
What better way to motivate yourself now spring has arrived than exploring the rugged coastline and white sand beaches which occupy Waiheke.
Rally your friends and family and plan a few days together full of sensational experiences. Take in the stunning views of Waiheke, finishing with drinks at a local vineyard. Perhaps join an award-winning photographer on a guided tour or enjoy a walk at dusk and gaze into the galaxy with Astronz telescopes.
Denise Whitfield has been the festi- val manager for the past five years, she absolutely loves the event and the community atmosphere it brings.
“We have worked hard to create a great selection of walks and we are very proud and excited about this year’s programme. The festival simply wouldn’t be possible without our team of dedicated volunteers, many of whom walk hundreds of kilometres before the event begins, to bring you the best routes and walking tracks on the island.”
Numbers are capped, and Whitfield says booking is essential as spaces fill up quickly. Priority bookings are available to those who become a “Friend” of the festival costing only $100.
Early bird registrations for Friends and Patrons opened 1 September 2018 with general bookings from 1 October 2018.
