Clubs NZ Family Day

A favourite in the calendar for Wellington families with a full day action packed with fun activities for everyone.

Loads of FREE activities for the little ones means Mum, Dad and the rest of the big kids can sit back, relax, enjoy a flutter and take in the gorgeous surrounds and sunshine. 

For a day of wholehearted good ole-fashioned fun in the sun, swap you’re heels for jandals, your finery for shorts and sundresses and pop on your sunhat.

Pack your picnic and find a spot on the lawn or make things easy and reserve a Gazebo spot in advance.

Free entry for all Clubs New Zealand Members on presentation of your membership card.
