Lost parents / children

Lost? Parents wandered off – parents have a habit of not staying where you left them! Head to the Kahurangi Friends Info and EFT POS tent (by the hall) for help.


Being in the ‘burbs on-street parking will fill up quickly.  Remember to drive carefully – there will be HEAPS of young kids, and please don’t park over someone’s driveway.  To save the hassle we suggest you walk, bike or take public transport


There are 2 options:

Will there be wheelchair accessible toilets?

Yes absolutely, there will be a wheelchair accessible portaloo. Please note it’s on the field, accessible over grass (here’s  the map)

Can we bring our pet dog?

Sorry, it is a loud, stressful environment for our four legged friends.  And some kids are really scared of dogs. Please don’t make us ask you to go because you’ve brought your dog – it makes us feel stink.  So, best to leave Fido at home.

That’s just for pet dogs – we want Kotahi to be accessible to everyone and service dogs are totally welcome.

Can we bring our own food and alcohol?

Yes, you can. Please drink responsibly, it’s a family event. There will be food trucks but no bar on site. Don’t forget your water bottle to fill up at the drink fountain.

What does koha mean?

Koha is a donation, but it is not expected.  It is awesome when you give though and we really, really appreciate it.

I really want a t-shirt!

Send us an email: kahurangifriends@gmail.com and we’ll see what we can do

What else should I bring?

We can experience four seasons in one day – so bring layers, including something warm. Don’t miss out on that legendary performance because a southerly blast comes through and you’re only in a singlet. And don’t forget your sunscreen!

Kahurangi Friends seem awesome – can I join?

We’d love that!  Our group is made up of parents of kids at Kahurangi School, parents of kids at other schools, people that aren’t even parents and just want to help out.  All welcome. Drop us a line at kahurangifriends@gmail.com
