The Kaipatiki Project has two fantastic FREE all ages events coming up in October and November. If you’ve enjoyed the Eco Fun Days that we hold at the Kaipatiki Project Environment Centre in Birkdale in March each year, then these events are for you!

UPPER HARBOUR ECO FUN DAY 2017

Date: Saturday 14 October
Time: 10am – 2pm
Location : Rifle Range facility, Catalina Bay Drive, Hobsonville Point.

Kaipatiki Project is partnering with Homes Land Community (HLC), the Upper Harbour Ecology Network (UHEN), Good Health, the Upper Harbour Local Board and the Hobsonville Community Trust to bring you the Upper Harbour Eco Fun Day!  This event will combine family fun, learning, music, creativity, nature and sustainable living – all in a festival atmosphere at the fantastic Rifle Range facility at Hobsonville Point.

The Rifle Range facility is located adjacent to Bomb Point Park and the Coastal Walkway, so bring your walking shoes and cycles and explore the beautiful surroundings of Hobsonville Point.  Even better, leave your car at home and cycle or walk to the event as parking will be limited.  And while you’re there, pay a visit to the fantastic Farmers Market located on the waterfront too!

Finally, we are still signing up vendors, activity providers, community organisations and volunteers for this event:
