Get Outdoors Week is here!

Get Outdoors Week is a national campaign that encourages Kiwis to get out and explore the great outdoors, and it starts today!

Taking place on 14-22 November, Get Outdoors Week is the perfect opportunity to go on a local adventure and explore the natural wonders that Aotearoa has to offer. There's no limit on how you can get involved, whether it's a short bush walk with the kids, a swim in the ocean or a picnic in your local park!
