There is plenty of recreational activities to keep the family busy in the beautiful sunshine at The Lakes, Tauranga​.

Orienteering Courses

Come along to The Lakes and choose from the three orienteering courses available.

There is a course to suit everyone. The short course is great for a leisurely stroll around the Lakes with the little ones. Burn off some energy on the medium course, and the long course takes you on a tour of The Lakes with interesting Q & A's about the Lakes and a code buster to top it off. Find out more...
