Whether it’s building barbeques in the Stone Store Basin, helping kids from our community achieve their full potential, or pitching in to make a success of our vital annual fund-raisers, the Rotary Club of Kerikeri is an important strand in the fabric of our community. The club is one of the most active and influential in the region. We’re a friendly, inclusive bunch united by a desire to pitch in and help our town maintain its position as the jewel in the crown of the Bay of Islands and the Mid North. Our membership is broadly reflective of the town’s population and spans a wide range of ages, trades and professions, and backgrounds. This mix is part of what makes the club so dynamic and interesting. Welcome to our website. Welcome to this window on the world of Rotary. And, in particular, welcome to the Rotary Club of Kerikeri.
We also organize the annual Kerikeri New World Rotary Garden Safari which is the fund-raising brainchild of the town’s Rotary club. There’s been a Garden Safari in Kerikeri every year since the inaugural event in 1987 and it has now earned a well-justified reputation as one of the must-do events on the town’s social calendar.
And not just the town’s social calendar. Each year the Garden Safari attracts people from all parts of the country – it’s become a Kerikeri tourist attraction in its own right.
This is a great day out for the whole family; a once-a-year opportunity to see beyond the gates and explore some of the most interesting gardens in the region. It’s a real ‘must do’ for gardeners and non-gardeners alike.
