Recreation Aotearoa encourages participation in Get Outdoors Week activities

Recreation Aotearoa encourages participation in Get Outdoors Week activities
November 6, 2020

With hundreds of great opportunities around New Zealand to suit all skill levels, Recreation Aotearoa is encouraging people to join one of the many events planned around the country for Get Outdoors Week taking place from 14th to 22nd November. People are also encouraged to use the tools on the Get Outdoors Week website to get involved.

Get Outdoors Week is led by Recreation Aotearoa in collaboration with New Zealand’s leading recreation, tourism and safety organisations.

Recreation Aotearoa Chief Executive, Andrew Leslie advises “Get Outdoors Week is only a week away, so now is the time to start thinking about where you’ll go and what you’ll do to get involved.”

Leslie notes “for family-friendly trips around New Zealand, the Department of Conservation has a great search resource designed exactly for this purpose. You can filter searches by region to find something in your area. Some of these walks are popular well-known spots, but you can also find hidden gems or places you may not have been to before.”

There is a wide range of activities to get involved with; short walks for parents with prams, organised running events, dragon boating, mountain biking and pet-friendly hikes. More events are being added in the lead up to Get Outdoors Week.

For those who would like to support others to get outdoors during the week, you can list your own event, promote the week through social media and get your friends together to plan your own trip.

Visit the Get Outdoors Week website for more information and planning resources
