Join us for a day of indulgence and fun this summer in one of our five tours located around New Zealand. All our tours takes place on a Friday from 10am to 4pm and is a self-guided day, showcasing nine houses in the respective areas.

Tour Hubs:
The Hub has become a highlight on our tours - open from 9.30am, the Hub is a space where tour-goers can enjoy food, refreshments, enter amazing competitions and find plenty of ways to support the charity. You can also look forward to a warm welcome from our family of sponsors, along with the chance to meet our wonderful staff from the magazine, have a chat with our Editor, Sally Duggan and hear more about the great work Breast Cancer Foundation New Zealand are doing. 

Important information to note:

  • When registering, attendees will be able to choose their starting house. This will ensure that groups travelling together can start together at the same house.
    Note: Houses are numbered at random so choose any house as a starting location.

  • Please ensure you have a photo ID for registration. At your starting house, a security check will be done at the door when you collect your wristband.

  • To avoid congestion, you must start at the house you have been allocated on your ticket. If you arrive at a different house, you will be turned away.

  • Official tickets, which include house addresses and important tour information will be issued two weeks prior to the tour date.

  • You will receive your e-ticket via email. It will reflect your starting house number. No tickets will be posted to you.

  • Name changes on tickets will not be accepted after official tickets have been issued, two weeks prior to the tour date.

  • Please be aware, there will be strictly no shoes allowed inside houses - only socks or bare feet. Shoe bags will be provided to everyone on the day. Wear comfortable shoes you can easily slip on and off.
