The Auckland Branch YHA New Zealand will be running a trip to Mission Bay for a picnic and Waitangi celebration at Bastion Point on Waitangi Day Friday 6 February
We will meet at the Mission Bay fountain at 12:30pm for BYO lunch. You can buy your lunch at one of many food shops at Mission Bay such as Oporto, Burger King and Fish Pot Cafe, or bring your own from home.
Afterwards we will wander up to Bastion Point reserve for the annual Waitangi Day celebration, which is a very popular annual event. A spectacular array of kites will be flying, there will be carnival rides, you can see the original and modern Maori flags flying, and enjoy a selection of live music from The Black Seeds, Hollie Smith & 1814.
You can come earlier for a swim, high tide will be mid-morning.
Mission Bay is readily accessible by bus from Britomart. You can easily get to Britomart from most parts of Auckland by train, bus or ferry.
