The Brook Waimārama Sanctuary Open Day - Big Green Day Out

Sunday 7th April 2024


Join us for Nelson's Big Green Day Out, a family-friendly event celebrating the rich biodiversity of Aotearoa's native flora and fauna in the picturesque setting of The Brook Waimārama Sanctuary. Indulge in delectable street food, discover key conservation milestones, and immerse yourself in the serenity of the pristine Waimārama stream. Whether you prefer a leisurely stroll along peaceful bush tracks or simply want to relax and enjoy the birdsong, this event offers something for everyone. Plus, with Free Entry, it's an ideal combination of education and fun for all ages.

As the largest fenced sanctuary for endangered plants and creatures in the South Island, The Brook Waimārama Sanctuary, located near Nelson city but tucked away, provides a unique opportunity to connect with the natural beauty of New Zealand's native bush. Take a deep breath, engage with the environment, and appreciate the sanctuary's commitment to conservation.

This year the theme is 'The Halo Effect'. Stay tuned for more information and a full activity line-up, coming soon!
