Bay of Islands Walking Weekend

Bay of Islands Walking Weekend – 2nd, 3rd and 4th October, 2015

The Bay of Islands Walking Weekend is proving popular, so here’s a reminder to book your favourite walks and accommodation for this year’s event.

See Bay of Islands Walking Weekend for details.

With the days getting longer as we head into Spring, it’s also a good time to start with some warm-up walks.  The beauty of these walks is you never know what you may experience.  Walkers out at Elliot’s were treated when a southern right whale appeared out of the blue last week.  There is a walk for everyone, with island walks, coastal paths, historical trails, even winery stops.  With many trees in bloom, there are native birds aplenty and stunning scenery over the coastal landscape.

After a great day’s walking, enjoy a sundowner at The Duke before heading back to one of the area’s luxurious lodges or hotels.

Fitness Fun – Explore Paihia 1/2 Marathon is on 31st May, 2015. What a magical course for a walk or run.  There is a 12km level of entry for those wanting a shorter course or go for the 21km.
If you prefer to stroll with a golf club in hand, it’s a superb time of year to experience the golf courses in the region including Bay of Islands Golf Course at Kerikeri, Whangaroa, Waitangi Golf Course or Kauri Cliffs.

MusicThe Royal Bash will see various talented performers take to the stage on the Village Green in Paihia, this Saturday 30th May.

For a warming sundowner, why not sit by the fire at The Duke of Marlborough or watch the sunset from The Gables. If winter has you thinking of a good hot curry, eat in or takeaway at the Spice Route in Russell or select from the blackboard specials at Wharepuke in Kerikeri.
The Bay of Islands winery trail will surprise with quality wine and spectacular scenery.
Stop at the roadside stalls for fresh mandarins, lemons and limes at this time of year.  Two of New Zealand’s finest chocolate producers are conveniently located in The Bay with Newport Chocolates in Russell and Matakana in Kerikeri.
