Travel or plan your travels — that is what this weekend all about.
Friday 13th October
Ghostly Ghouls and Glow Worms in Ohope
Playing it cool on Friday, 13th is, well… not cool at all! Release your inner child, dress up in your scariest costume and join the Whakatane Kiwi Trust for the creepy night with screeching kiwi birds and crawlers. The itinerary promises ‘glow worms’, so we secretly hope that is exactly what they mean by ‘crawlers’!

Not to mention the fabulous Ultimate UK Holiday voucher valued at $8,000 that will be presented to one of the lucky visitors.

People at this part of the Bay are def the hugest bird lovers ever! Right after the Halloween-inspired night out with the kiwi birds in Ohope, they invite us to enjoy ‘photos, display of bird tea towels and other bird information’ at the i-Site.
Feeling a bit lost in Whakatane? Here are five more things you can do in the sunshine capital of New Zealand after exploring the exhibition.
