Our southern hemisphere version of this international event occurs at a beach near you!
Just get a group friends together and go down to your beach as the moon rises. No togs, no sunscreen; but lots of fun! It will be a full moon, clear sky, warm sea and maybe a balmy breeze. What an ideal setting to enjoy naturism, with the great ivory globe creating a rippling silver path across the dark blue liquid silk of the sea, until it meets the golden sands...
This is an international event - 2012 was the first time the World Naked Bike Ride was held in Tauranga; the 10th time at Takaka and the third time on the Rail Trail. From 2015, the Rail Trail route has changed to starting at the Waitati hall (20km north of Dunedin) to Doctors Point Beach (and this time is on Sun, March 15th)
The Takaka (& world) event is to be on Saturday March 7th, from Autumn Farm.

As an introduction to the new Naturist Season, invite some friends to your place - to help you in the garden. This season, Yates' is 'on board' with their National Gardening Week: 21st - 28th October. If you apply by October 5th they're offering some butterfly-friendly plant seeds, free!
(Note that 'World Naked Gardening Day' is in May - but that only suits the Northern Hemisphere...)
