Please note: Rangihoua Estate venue is strictly no BYO alcohol-a licensed bar with Waiheke Wines will be available, along with Food Trucks offering a good range of food and snacks. Please no Dogs. And it is recommended to bring cash as some of vendors will not have Eftpos facilities and WiFi signal can be unreliable.

Weather update: With the unpredictability of the current weather pattern we recommend bringing a waterproof jacket and if you can, a picnic blanket to sit on. We have lots of cover if showers arrive, but if everyone dresses for Autumn, there should be no concerns
