NO ONE HOME TOUR
Starting in Northland on Sunday morning, we’ll end up in Southland on Thursday night without using SH1 – we’re hoping to make it 4th time lucky and we’re going to make it to Takaka this time. Come along for a day, the whole week, or just for dinner – get on the mailing list for updates as the planning comes together. 
This tour was planned for March 2020 but postponed due to COVID-19 – we’re deffo looking forward to it in 2021!

June 2021
THE GATHERING
Take advantage of the long Queen’s Birthday weekend to go exploring the central North Island. Short days of about 300kms mean we avoid the frost at either end of the day – so expect relaxed breakfasts and casual evenings. We’ll confirm the location nearer the time.
