@ Caledonian Park, Waipu, Northland NZ
Ceud mile failte – a hundred thousand welcomes.
A warm welcome to our new website and hope you will find it helpful.
Every year New Zealanders attend Highland Games to compete in Piping, Drumming, Highland Dancing, Athletics and Highland Heavyweight Field Events, or to share with the public their Clan heritage and genealogy – and Waipu is no different.
The Waipu Highland Games are considered by the Whangarei District Council as one of the most iconic events in all of Northland; and is the largest Highland Games in New Zealand. It is also the home of the Annual New Zealand Highland Heavyweight Championships.
This year is starting to warm up with preparation for the 2013 – 142nd Waipu Highland Games and the team lead by Chairman Don Ewen is ready to put on a great event with the help of many volunteers.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank the wonderful hardworking and dedicated committee members of this society.
Chief Pipe Major Bain McGregor
