2022-23 Events

January - Skinny-Dip Down a Moonbeam (Sat 6th, 2024 - full moon)
(also February, on Monday 6th - next full moon)

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...

January - A Day Without Togs (Sat 27th, 2024)

Our southern hemisphere version of this international event occurs at a beach near you!

February - SFB Naturist Retreat (Fri 16th - Sun 18th, 2024)

Our Southern Free Beaches event occurs near the end of February!

March - World Naked Bike Rides (Takaka Sat 2nd, Waihi Sat 16th), 2024

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 usually on a Sunday)

June - Polar Plunge - everywhere! (Sun 23th, 2024)

Free Beaches challenge everyone to get out to your nearest beach and make a big splash!
Feel free to go to St Leonards, Uretiti, Peka Peka, Ototoka, Tapuae, Tahunanui, South New Brighton - you name it!
(Please let us know where you are going, so we can spread the message for that place!)

AGMs: National FBNZ (August or September 2024)

Free Beaches NZ Inc's National Committee usually calls the AGM in August or September.
The Canturbury Regional Committee's AGM is usually held about the same time.

October - Naked Gardening Day (Labour weekend 28th 2024)

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: 16th - 23rd October. If you apply by early October 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...)

AGM: NZ Naturist Federation (December 28)

The New Zealand Naturist Federation's AGM is generally held on the first Wednesday after Christmas, and is followed by the annual Festival, usually held in a main centre around the country.
