Knapps Lawyers’ Boulder Bank Challenge is on again this year and coming up fast. Mark your diary for Sunday 22 March – our postponement date in case of bad weather will be the following week, 29 March.
This is a great event for the whole familly – although very young ones would need to be carried 🙂 We take you from Wakefield Quay by bus to the end of Boulder Bank Drive, you walk the 9 km back to the Cut, and we bring you back by boat. Along the way you can go by the baches (owners have been known to offer you a cuppa and give you a peek inside), go up to the top of the lighthouse, listen to speakers on the history of ‘the Bank’ and see Nelson from a different perspective. We also have a barbecue going at the lighthouse so you don’t get too hungry. 🙂
Tickets are $20 for bus/boat option, $25 to go by boat both ways. Tickets will be available in mid February from the following locations:
Knapps Lawyers, Richmond and Motueka
TSB Bank, Trafalgar St, Nelson
Sand and Land, Tahunanui
Stoke Garden & Landscapes, Saxton Road
