Zig Zag Night Walk
TBA - we'll let you know once we have a new date
5:45 - 8:00pm
Getting to know our local nightlife
The Zig Zag walking track is a popular walk around Titirangi, especially since it is one of the few re-opened, with an upgraded track, through the Rahui.
With its twists, turns, steps, waterfalls and giant trees, its a cool retreat from the sun, or a quiet bush walk close to the village.
But, have you explored it after dark?
There's much more to this gorgeous green walk, than first admired.
Join us with our guide to find out just a little more. Explore the local nightlife, insects, plants and learn a little about the wildlife.
