  • 20th November - Yellow Zone (Tauranga Central, Matua & Otumoetai)

  • 21st November - Green Zone (Te Puke, Papamoa & Mt Maunganui)

The service will commence at the Festival Hub (Tauranga Racecourse) at 10am and return at 4.30pm.


Venues each day will be selected based on location and popularity.
A lunch stop will be facilitated at one of the gardens or at the Festival Hub.
