The Auckland Highland Games
Held annually, The Auckland Highland Games and Gathering is a showcase of Scottish heritage in Auckland, New Zealand.
A kaleidoscope of activities are on display – Highland and Country dancing, singing and music, the skirl of the pipes in the Pipe Band and Solo Piping competitions. The field events, including caber tossing, sheaf and haggis tossing, tug of war, a Man Events Team, a Junior Highland Games concept, historical fighting, as well as games for the children to take part in. The Clan Avenue is full of keen historians and cultural specialists sharing their knowledge with their tents full of colourful displays and information.
The day is a community and family event where the activities are organised so you can either relax, take in the sights or, if you feel like getting involved, there is plenty of opportunity to participate in the games around the field.
