Slip on your walking boots – Waiheke Walking Festival month has arrived!

Have you booked all your walks yet?

We are two and a half weeks away from the start of the Waiheke Walking Festival 2018 and we can’t wait. A number of walks have booked out but there are still loads of walk spaces available, so if you’re still thinking about booking some walks we suggest securing your spot today.


Join Matthew Smith, Ray White Principal & Waiheke Walking Festival Presenting Partner…

Ray White Waiheke is our presenting partner for the second year running and Matthew Smith will be leading a number of walks this Festival.

Thanks so much to Matthew and his Ray White Waiheke team for supporting the Festival in so many different ways.

Monthly Walk Series


Last Sunday was the last of our Monthly Walk Series, our Fullers360 Northern Coastal Walk . The rain held off and we had a great time. Thank you to a wonderful bunch of volunteers and to everyone who joined us.

The Monthly Series has been fantastic to connect with our walkers outside of the Festival. We are keen to hear your thoughts and find out if you’ve enjoyed it as much as we have. Let us know if we should bring it back next year, what we can do to make it even better, or just drop us a line to say hi. We always love hearing from you.
