Rotorua Walking Festival



Start Friday 17 Mar. 2023 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm
End Sunday 19 Mar. 2023 7:00 am - 3:00 pm


The activities around the event start from Friday noon 17 March until 4 pm Sunday 19 March, using the Netherlands Society Clubrooms, Neil Hunt Park, Tarawera Road as the headquarters for the event.

There is a full programme of events on for the Rotorua Walking Festival on 17, 18 and 19 March 2023.
Starting with the Nocturnal Walk ($5 donation to Rotorua Botanical Society – enter on the night) on Friday (17th) evening at 8 pm, there is a full programme of forest walks on Saturday with 10, 21 and 42 km walks. On Sunday there are 10, 20, 30 and 42 km walks through Rotorua’s fantastic geothermal, steam, lakefront and parks and reserve areas. There is a real challenge for walkers this year with back to back marathon walks on Saturday and Sunday!

In addition we also have special charity fundraising walks for Rotorua Parents Centre (on Saturday at 10.30 am) and Rotorua SPCA (on Sunday at 10.30 am). These walks are between 2 km and 5 km and are fun events. All proceeds for these events go to the organisation involved, so if you’re not walking in one of the main walks, please come and support these great causes.
You can still enter online here:

Our event has the key objectives of using walking to bring people together, enjoying our natural and built environments and keeping people healthy through physical activity. It has a recreational focus but is still a challenge and you can walk on one or two days.
Key aspects for the 2023 event will include:
1. Dual marathon walks – walk a marathon distance on the Saturday and Sunday – a real challenge!
2. Friday evening nocturnal walk.
3. Barista coffee onsite.
4. Caterers onsite.
5. Live entertainment each day.
6. Varied walk routes through the forest trail network and also on the paths in the CBD.
7. Spot prizes for walkers.
