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!

Fantastic place to stay, all amenities are thoughtfully placed. Very comfy bed, awesome shower and great kitchen setup. Lovely hosts and nothing was to much trouble. The views from the so are beautiful! We stayed 2 nights but will be back for a longer stay
Wow,wow & wow! My husband & I (& our little poodle) had the pleasure to stay in the Cabana for 4 nights 10/09-13/09. The accommodation was top notch and of course the position was unbeatable. Accommodation that allows pets to be included is often disappointing so Golden Sands is a...
