Picnic and sunset at Mount Eden
Hi Expats! For our last event of 2018, let's have a Xmas/end of the year shared picnic at Mount Eden! Mount Eden is the highest volcanic cone of Auckland and one of my favourite places in the city. It offers stunning views of Auckland and the Waitemata Harbour, it's close to the city and it does not take too long to walk to the summit :-) We will meet at the top of Mount Eden and then walk around the crater and down a track to find a nice grassy spot to sit, have dinner, enjoy the views and watch the beautiful sunset! Stay tuned, I'll post some more indications as we get closer to the event. What to bring? - Food or drinks to share, ideally traditional of your home country and that people enjoy having at Christmas or in summer. - A blanket if you don't want to sit directly on the grass. - It might also be a good idea to bring your own picnic set. I'll bring a few plates/glasses and some cutlery, but not enough for everyone. How to get there? Bus 27H, 27T or 27W. For drivers, there are plenty of parking spaces alongside Mount Eden Road. You can also try the small carpark in Puhi Huia Road, at the start of the road that takes you to the summit. From the car park, it takes about 15/20 min to walk to the summit. There are public toilets at the bottom of Mount Eden. I hope to see you there :-) Cheers Sophie

What we're about

Hey, you! You're not from around here, are you?

Good! This group is for you.

All of us are from different countries and have a story to share.

We're into exploring the city and surrounding areas, being active, getting creative, trying new things, tapping into the local culture, and speaking of taps, having some beers together, too.

As an expat, it can be a bit of a challenge settling in and finding "your people" in a new country. So bring your good spirits out and meet some likeminded people from all corners of the world. All are welcome.

Please make sure your profile photo includes your face, and you're set to go!
