Become a Friend of the Festival

Support the festival and you’ll get early access booking options and 10 walking spots!


Many of our Festival goers have told us that they would love to support the Festival with a financial contribution, so we have the Friends of the Waiheke Walking Festival Program, limited to 100 members only.

The Waiheke Walking Festival relies on funding, grants and sponsorship to make it happen each year.

The Friends membership fee is $100, to help improve the long-term financial stability of the Festival. As a thank you, we give you 10 walking spots (only 6 for the general public). And, Friends receive early access to booking to all of the walks. This gives you a great opportunity to book on to the walks you want.

We sincerely thank you for your support.

NOTE: If you paid in 2021, and requested to be ‘rolled-0ver’ for 2022, you are still a Friend for this year! If you donated your Friends membership (thank you so much) or got a refund, please join up again as a Friend. We so appreciate you ongoing support.

Our Sponsors
We couldn’t run this festival without the support of our Sponsors, Funders and Supporters. The Waiheke Walking Festival would like to the thank you all. Support our supporters to show your thanks too.
