What's On

Looking for a memorable kiwi Summer? Look no further!

Waterbourne is a unique event that integrates a range of elements that cater to all. 
Whether it’s on water or land, we’ve got you covered. Join us at New Zealand's biggest watersports and beach festival where we take classic kiwi Summer fun to the next level.



Have you ever wanted to watch a movie outside on the beach? Whether you’re looking for a change of scenery, a place to take someone special or somewhere to take the family, the Waterbourne movie nights offer free entertainment with a perfect Summer atmosphere. 

OceanBridge Clean Up
We love watersports which means we love the water. There is nothing more important to us than protecting the beautiful beaches we have so that they can be preserved for generations to come. Along with the help of Oceanbridge and volunteers we challenge everyone to make sustainability something we live by. Join us in our efforts to protect Aotearoa.

SandCastle Competition
Sandcastle building is not for the lighthearted. Calling all adults and families to bring your competitive spirit, vivid imaginations and all your dreams together to build a piece of temporary beauty. Will your castle reach towards the sky? Will it demonstrate sustainability and beach fun? Or will it crumble before it gets judged?

Food & Drinks

We pride ourselves on supporting local, where we work with New Zealand businesses to deliver unique offerings. Seafood is at our core, alongside a range of other meat, vegetarian and vegan options.
