Local Events and Happenings for December (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

Now Going Every Day:

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.
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.
