7th – 8th – 9th 

October 2016

Based in Russell, the walking weekend has 18 walks to choose from  – from a Cultural History tour around the Russell Village to an Island Ramble – heading out on the famous R. Tucker Thompson to Otehei Bay, there is something for everyone who loves to walk!

Again we are expecting a great week not only for the beauty of the bay but for the cultural and historic elements that are unique to this part of the world. To ensure you get the best out of the walks we have local guides to lead you all the way. Our guides are all passionate and knowledgeable about the Bay of Islands area and bring something extra to the walking experience. Each walk has no more than 20 people, so get in quick to book.

There will also be entertainment and competitions throughout the weekend. All walks leave from the headquarters where you will get to meet your guide, fellow walkers and be provided with an overview of the walk.

Russell is a fantastic base for the weekend with lots of great restaurants, places to stay and for the non-walkers out there, plenty of things to do.
