Offsite Tours


On Saturday the 15th, all Moot participants go offsite for a major activity or Tour. Some of the options are listed below


Water Ya Scared Of? – AUD $205

Start your day off by getting nice and moist at New Zealand’s only whitewater park! Team up to conquer the rapids in your raft, then take the ultimate plunge off the 4.5m waterfall – and yes, we checked, there will be water! Spend the rest of your day at Rainbow’s End and find out who really is the bravest of the brave.

Wai the Heke Not? – AUD $320

For a classy day out with a dash of adventure, Waiheke Island is the place to be. Start your day on a high by zip lining above the native bush, before a guided bush walk to work up your appetite. Spend the rest of your day tasting your way across vineyards and olive groves, including lunch at Stonyridge.

Indulge, You Must – AUD $205

If you want to try something new, without venturing too far outdoors, look no further! Learn the art of chocolate making, spend some quality time with feline friends at the fabled cat cafe, and work off all that chocolate you taste-tested by taking a pole fitness class.

Totally Awesome Rovers Delve Into Space – AUD $215

Take a step back in aviation history as you check out the aircraft at Auckland’s Museum of Transport and Technology (MOTAT), before taking to the skies yourself.

Take a trip down memory lane with a Grand Tour of Auckland’s best playgrounds! Giant slides, spinning wheels of doom, massive swings, and heaps of things to climb on! To mix things up, we’ll also have a go at trampolining and challenge you to solve puzzles in a race against the clock at Escape Rooms.

Fantastic Four – AUD $100

(It’s a reference to the Silver Surfer okay? Just roll with it)

If you love the beach, then this is the tour for you! Start the day with a two hour surf lesson at Muriwai, one of Auckland’s best beaches. Chill out with beach sports, Blokarts and maybe a swim in the surf! Wind up the day with a walk through native bush to the stunning Mokoroa Falls.

Tour will be better than latest film, we promise.

Water’n’Holes – AUD $130

After recovering some of your strength with lunch at the iconic Puhoi Pub, head out to The Range in Warkworth and try your hand at the air rifles, driving range, mini golf and baseball – we guarantee you’ll sleep well after this tour!


Luke Skywalker – AUD $60

Start your morning overlooking Auckland from the viewing deck of the 328m high Sky Tower, where those of you with a taste for extreme adventure can try the SkyJump or SkyWalk.

Please note that Easter Show attractions and SkyWalk/SkyJump experiences must be purchased separately when your tour is confirmed.

Night Tours

That’s right, more tours! Choose to spend your Friday night relaxing in the hot pools at Parakai Hot Springs or getting snow down your pants at Snow Planet – but you’d better be in quick! Spaces are limited on our exclusive Night Tours, so it’s first in best dressed…

Forbidden Snowplanet I (Snowtubing) – AUD $50

Fancy a play in the snow but don’t have the co-ordination (or the cash) for renting skis? The only skill required to Snow Tube is the ability to sit on a massive inflatable ring and enjoy the rush as you speed down the slope!

Forbidden Snowplanet II (Ski/Board) – AUD $75

Whether you want to have a go at skiing or boarding for the first time, or you’re hoping to brush up on your terrain park skills, Snowplanet is the place to go! With gear hire included, why would you want to do anything else?

Water on Mars – AUD $40

Let’s face it. By the end of Friday you’ll be exhausted from service and Tug-of-War and just want to relax. We understand, so we’re taking you to chill out in the hot pools at Parakai Springs – although hopefully you’ll have enough energy to make it down the water slide!
