Do you love the outdoors? Have you always wanted to spend a day discovering everything a wetland has to offer? Matuku Link is excited to invite children aged 7-12 to our inaugural Holiday Programme Day on the 12th October! You will have a great time exploring and learning from the wetland and forest, discovering some of New Zealand’s native and endemic species, and getting hands on and creative in an outdoor setting. You’ll get to feed our eels, meet Bruce the Pāteke and learn the secrets of the critters in our waterways! 

Our holiday programme day will run from 9am – 3pm on Wednesday 12 October. To book a spot or for more information, email

We look forward to exploring with you! – Leah
