Mangawhai Walking Weekend 2019 Friday 29 – Sunday 31 March So now the dates are set we will get working on some new walks for next year! Always something new to explore in Magical Mangawhai!
Good weather, positive numbers, new walks combined with old favourites set the scene for a very successful 2018 Mangawhai Walking Weekend. With a wide range of walks straddling Thursday to Sunday and a sold out Food and Wine Festival on Saturday afternoon, the Mangawhai Walking Weekend was a success on all fronts, with 1750 tickets sold across all events! Most of all thank you to all of those who walked with us this year, making the weekend such a resounding success!
We have two brilliant ‘no walking’ walks this walking weekend. Try the secret of the ‘Blokes Shed’ or ‘4 Beaches and an Ice Cream’. Both take you on a exciting journey by bus, minimum walking required on these adventures…..get on the bus!!!
Mangawhai may be the walking capital of New Zealand, and while you can walk some of our walks all year round, the Mangawhai Walking Weekend features some walks that are only available at this time because of access issues. These are those walks: Blokes Sheds Bream Tail Ramble Doggie Walk Estuary to Ocean Mangawhai Garden Spectacular Tern Point Ramble Te Arai Unwrapped …don’t miss the opportunity to explore!!
