The gates open at 12 pm on March 6 2021. We are celebrating 10 years of the festival fun this year so it is not to be missed!
The Festival draws locals from across the Far North but it is a mecca for no locals too. Great bands on the main stage, line dancers, youth performances, loads of quality food and beverage stalls - and the local shops and pub get in on the fun also!
Last year we just got in before COVID 19 - what a different time that was ( pre COVID) So this year is a real celebration that we have "beaten" COVID this time also.
Another stalwart Far North Event is the Ngai Takoto Snapper Bonanza Surfcasting Competition, this year set down for March 16-20. This is great week of fishing the world famous 90 Mile Beach ( harder than it looks!) and you can go in the draw for the heaviest Snapper ( prize of $30 000) or the average weight snapper ( $10 000) But what the locals enjoy is the massive spot prizes culminating in a ticket holder - doesn't have to be a fisherman winning the Mitsubishi Triton!
This apartment was in the best location ever being right on the beach- very clean and looked quite new. Everything that ups could think of was provided and there was a great coffee shop with excellent fish and chips and lunch food right across the road also with friendly staff.
