Winter fun in the Bay of Islands for families

Kiaora, Aloha and Hello,

There are some rally cool stuff happening in the Bay of Islands this winter. So let me tell you a little bit about some of them.

We have the fabulous BIRDMAN FESTIVAL

coming up July 12th and 13th in Russell check it out

Fantastic fun for all family members, tons of great FREE activities for kids to do.

Another Great Festival is the IT-FESTIVAL

This festival is on October 5th. As much as this is promoted a family festival and they do have a semi-closed in Children’s play area it is way more fun to bring the mates. Lots of amazing local foods, beverages and heaps of dancing going on. This year the Automatic 80’s, White Chapel Jak, Double Shot, Boh Runga are hitting the stage.


The Bay of Islands walking weekend

is hitting off on October 18th-20th. This weekend is for walkers, hikers, nature lovers and everyone wanting to enjoy the Bay of Islands from a scenic perspective. They use local guides that might even tell you some true history but with a complete passion for the Bay. The Walks are stunning and suitable for all physical abilities.
