Discounted admission for visitors to Ngā Manu who ‘Gumboot Up’!

‘Gumboot Up’ and come and have some fun at Ngā Manu! The I Am Hope Gumboot Friday campaign is raising funds for free counselling for any kid who needs help. For people struggling with depression, it can feel like walking through mud every day, so show your support, wear your gumboots to Ngā Manu, and take a walk in their shoes for just one day.

Visitors who ‘Gumboot Up’ will receive discounted admission: Adults – $10, Seniors/Students – $8 and Children – $5, with 50% of the proceeds going to the I Am Hope campaign (The Key to Life Charitable Trust) and 50% to the Ngā Manu Trust. Take part in our Gumboot throwing contest at midday and watch the eels being fed at 2pm. It’s a fun way to join in the mental health conversation, while raising money to provide free and timely counselling for any young person in need.
