There is so much to do on Waiheke over Christmas and New Year (I mean, vineyards, beaches, restaurants, the village, romance, art, walks, sailing + of course events) it’s hard to begin. But begin we must…
1) Carols by the sea
This Saturday, 21 December, Little Oneroa from 6-8pm.
You know the deal, bring a picnic or sneaky bottle of bubbly, sing along, enjoy live stage performances + get in a Yule Tide Mood.
Wet weather date: Sunday 22 December
This event is brought to you by our very own Waiheke Local Board. Thanks you guys!
2) $2 Book Fair
Friday 27, Sat 28, Sun 29 December at the Morra Hall (115 Ocean Road). 10am-4pm each day.
High quality books mostly $2. Kids, magazines, comics and mills & boons, 50c. Buy 10, get the 11th free!
Walking? Hop onto the passenger ferry in downtown Auckland. Catch the bus up the hill and jump off outside Morra Hall. After browsing the books have lunch in one of our many cafes or settle on the beach for an afternoon of reading – bliss!
3. Art Exhibitions
Toi Gallery has the Sally Smith Summer Works show on.
4. New Years Eve Party (the mother of all….) at Stonyridge
Stonyridge puts on a doozy. If that’s your bag, check it out! Highlife.
5. Decks on the Beach NY Eve party at Onetangi
6. Family Fun
Check out last weeks Waiheke Wednesday blog for ideas….
Wine, Art, Sightseeing. You name it, you can get an experienced local to take you ’round it. Here’s the info.
It’s perfect camping weather this year. Check out Whakanawha. Pitch your tent. Fish for flounder. Enjoy the BBQ. Bring a ball – there is huge flat running around area for a new years game of cricket, or a family soccer match. Nice.
If I’ve have missed something, please let me know. Either leave a comment or contact me directly and I’ll update the post.
Have a fabulous Christmas and New Year. Waiheke Wednesday will officially be back up and running on Wednesday Jan 7. Over the next couple of weeks, I’ll be posting a bunch of Waiheke Photo’s by our very own Pete Rees that show Waiheke in a light you’ve never seen. So, so, amazing. You’ll like. Promise.
