Auckland 2019 Festival

IWFS Asia Pacific, together with IWFS Auckland, are very much looking forward to welcoming you to New Zealand's beautiful, harbour city, Auckland from Friday 8th March to Sunday 10th March 2018, with additional tours to Napier, Hawke's Bay and Queenstown, Central Otago also available.  Please click here to see the full invitation. We are certain you will be delighted with the programme and we are very grateful to our fabulous Auckland branch for hosting this festival. Please see a personal invitation from Auckland branch president, Rowan Moss by clicking here.

The festival includes:

  • A three-day pre-Tour in Napier, Hawke's Bay (intended for a smaller group, therefore places are very limited) (March 4-6 ~ departing March 7 to return to Auckland)
  • A three-day main Festival in Auckland (March 8-10)
  • A four-day post-tour to the gorgeous Queenstown, Central Otago (March 11-14)

Please note that as Auckland will be the host city of our 2019 Asia Pacific AGM. Therefore we would especially like to see as many of our Asia Pacific branches represented at this AGM weekend as possible. 

To register please email APZ’s Administration Manager, Amber Dowling, at stating which festivals you would like to attend.  You will then be sent an email confirming your attendance and instructions on how to pay. Payment must be received in our account in full (and net of all bank fees) 14 days after you receive your confirmation email. If payment is not received within 14 days, then your place will not be held.  

Notes on how to book your accommodation are included in the invitation.  Please note that for Auckland you are required to make your own hotel bookings using the hotel booking form which you are to send to the hotel directly. Accommodation for Napier and Queenstown is included in the cost and will be booked on your behalf.

We really hope you will join us in Auckland, Napier and Queenstown in March 2019. It truly will be a magical experience.
