During Rail Safety Week, look at the serious issues there have been involving trains in New Zealand and find out why rail safety should concern you. On this trip, meet people who are most involved with rail on a day-to-day basis and share your thoughts with them.
The more people who take trains the safer and less congested our roads will be. Plus, it's better for our health to get out and about and more sustainable for the planet to stop using cars quite so often.

You probably think of Taupō as a lake rather than a volcano. That's because 25,500 years ago the supervolcano erupted from a massive pancake of magma about 5km below the ground surface. When most of the magma had been erupted, the ground overhead couldn't be supported anymore and collapsed – leaving a massive depression in the middle of the North Island. The depression slowly filled with water, becoming Lake Taupō.
During this field trip you will join geologists who are trying to understand how our supervolcano works and what we need to do to prepare for an eruption.
Our understanding of the settlement of Aotearoa NZ is developing and becoming clearer as archaeological sites unveil their secrets. Nowhere is this more evident than on Ahuahu Great Mercury Island.
On this field trip you will journey back in time to hear from descendants of early Māori, from archaeologists who will explain what they do in a dig, and from conservation workers restoring habitats and species.
As we acknowledge 250 years since the first onshore meetings between Māori and Europeans, exploring places such as Ahuahu Great Mercury Island will help us better understand our history and our country.
The 2019 Auckland Regional Sport Stacking Tournament will be held on Sunday 18 August.
You can be sure that cups and records will fly as our experienced stackers vie to beat their own times, as well as those of their closest competitors. Novice stackers practise and compete amongst the experienced stackers. Tips and tricks will be passed on freely, and you will be encouraged and supported every step of the way.
This is a fun-filled family event and spectators and media can join sport stackers, instructors and volunteers from 9am.
