2024 Auckland Anniversary Weekend Tour

What an awesome time our group had at our 2024 inaugural Concert in the Garden tour where over four hours and joined by around 150 concert goers they we were serenaded by the Lady Killers and Chris McHardy at the beautiful Admiral Gardens.

Our group enjoyed all the island has to offer, including fresh crayfish, blue cod, hapuka, kina and paua. Learning how to shuck paua was a highlight as was being hosted for lunch at the Murison’s sheep station near Kaingaroa.

We had fishermen’s luck on our side – “Queen of Fishing” was awarded to Erika, who had previously never been on a boat nor ever caught a fish!!

Wandering Albatross and the Chatham Island Mollymawk which is endemic to the Chatham Islands entertained us fighting for the spoils which were thrown overboard.

Not only did our group catch blue cod, Cody caught barracuda and a king fish.

A massive thanks to our sponsors for this event – Air Chathams, Hotel Chathams, Maude Wines and Chatham Island Breezy Brewery.
