Explore stunning Matakana Island on foot, walking as fast or slow as you like - stop for snacks or lunch along the way. Take in the views, learn about island culture and help support this beautiful community. Choose from a 10km or 12km walk covering farmland, roads, and bush trails.

Find a sponsor, or sponsor yourself, for each kilometre of the walk-a-thon you complete and choose one of the three local Marae to donate your sponsorship money too.

Proceeds will go toward maintenance and repair of the Marae.

- Packed lunch, drinks and snacks.
- Sturdy walking shoes and weather-appropriate clothing: sunhat, sunglasses, sunscreen etc.
- Cash money for the barge, sponsorship and purchases on the island (no Eftpos).
