Local Events and Happenings for October (and beyond)

The Gallery

Every Day:

The Gallery: @ Havelock Main Road 10:00am-4pm. This is a must visit. Featuring sixteen local artists, there is something for everyone here. I find it impossible to describe just how good this display is. It really is a case of “Wow!”
pelorus mail boat

Monday, Wednesday, Friday:

Pelorus Mail Boat: @ Havelock Marina 10am-4pm(ish). It is only a three minute walk to the Mail Boat from the Havelock Holiday Park. A short stroll back to your cabin or van after your trip, freshen up and then walk to one of our nearby restaurants for a magnificent meal to complete your first Havelock Experience. The Mail Boat offers 10% discount for Kiwi Park Members so join up when you book your stay with us and take advantage of this great offer.

Great News – Jim on the Pelorus Mail Boat has just offered Kiwi Park members a whopping 25% discount until the end of October.

The discount from staying two nights in a Kiwi Park and two people on the Mail Boat will pay for your membership for two years – from then on it’s all profit. Factor in the 10% discount off Blue Bridge Interisland Ferry as well and there really isn’t any reason why you shouldn’t join.

13th September – 9th October:

Art Exhibit: @ The Gallery. Presenting “One Size Does Not Fit All”, an art exhibit by Bonnie Coad. Bonnie specializes in mixed media collage.

Her signature style incorporates animal shapes and sewing patterns in an original collage.
