Safety and Responsibility

The Waiheke Walking Trust takes the health and safety of Waiheke Walking Festival attendees, our guides and our volunteers very seriously. We have strict training and operational procedures in place and it is essential that you follow the instructions of your guides and volunteers at all times.

Please read carefully the requirements for each walk and ensure you have the following:

  • Sufficient water for the duration of the walk plus a bit extra
  • Sunhat
  • Sunscreen
  • Comfortable and practical shoes for the terrain
  • Any emergency medication you may require for pre-existing conditions

You will be required to sign a health declaration form prior to each walk where any relevant medical conditions must be disclosed and discussed with the lead volunteer.

The Waiheke Walking Festival organisers have the right to refuse any person registered for the walk the opportunity to participate if they feel you are not suitably prepared or your health status suggests you may put yourself or the wider group at unnecessary risk. We thank you for your understanding with this.

Children must be accompanied by an adult.

Participants are responsible for their own belongings and vehicles while on walks.
