A long weekend to enjoy in Leigh. Below are some planned events but other things you can enjoy are snorkelling at Goat Island, walking some of the coastal tracks or beaches, take a trip on the glass bottom boat, swim at Matheson Bay, fish off Leigh Wharf, watch the birdlife especially in the flowering kowhai trees and much more! A day is just not long enough, so stay a night or two.

Just an hour north of Auckland – Leigh is the place to be!
Our group recently held their AGM and elected a new enthusiastic committee. Our aim is to bring more visitors to the Leigh area. Many visitors have commented that they wish they could have stayed longer to take in our beautiful scenery, beaches, birds, walks and marine life. There are plenty of options for staying in the area with three motor camps, numerous bed and breakfast rooms and self-contained accommodations.
Held Anzac Weekend 2014
Organised by the Leigh Business Commmunity this guided walk event was a huge success with over 140 participants. The walks were organised to raise awareness of Leigh’s beautiful coastline and attract visitors to the area. There were 9 groups and 8 different guided walks which gave a good variety to choose from. Many thanks to all the volunteers who made this event a success.
