Entertainment & Events
The best thing about this great little country is you’ll never get bored! And some of the best entertainment is free…. Local Farmers Markets are a big hit – and it’s much more than buying fresh produce - the whole community comes together, chatting, drinking coffee, meeting friends and welcoming visitors. This is a great Kiwi experience – most markets are al fresco and have wonderful local musicians playing everything from Latin American music to Country & Western and Jazz. Free concerts in the park are also a unique feature of Kiwi life. Bring a picnic and enjoy the atmosphere.
The choice is yours 24/7 – a ticket to an international sports match, ballet or show or a relaxed outing at your own pace. Local i-SITE visitor centres are great places to start with for information on markets, music, and events in the area.

A Winter Wonderland in Waiuku
From the moment you enter the Waiuku Town Hall, you will be enthralled to as you wind your way through a mystical fibre optic entrance, listening to Santa singing as you past a Snow Cave and then get a glimpse through Fibre Optic Arches to be entertained by the huge variety of animated Santa’s set in a Christmas Wonderland.
There are many delightful Santa’s up to their antics as they come to life to perform a song, dance or cheeky trick at a clap of a hand. They tell stories, climb ladders, belly dance and much more that has everyone in stitches and is to day an amazing show of
Christmas fun and laughter.
Event cost: Adult $6each - Child $2each
Take the Glenbrook Vintage Railway train to ‘Santa’s Wonderland' each Sunday in December. See the website for more details.
