Te Araroa - Imagine the Possibilities...


Become a Te Araroa Trail Partner

Te Araroa has been rated among the top long walks in the world by CNN and National Geographic for its scenic beauty and the way it connects walkers with New Zealand communities, cultures and historic sites.
During the 2019-2020 walking season (October-April) the number of people walking the entire length of the trail exceeded 1,200 for the first time. Hundreds of thousands more walked individual sections.
Te Araroa Trust is the kaitiaki (guardian) of the trail, responsible for developing, promoting and managing it. 
As the popularity of the trail grows, Te Araroa Trust is increasingly dependent on the generous support of sponsors to continue to improve the Te Araroa experience and ensure the sustainability of the trail.
Our sponsors help us develop alternative routes to minimise road walking sections, improve the information we provide to walkers and other trail stakeholders, and develop the infrastructure required to cope with the growing number of domestic and international visitors walking in the New Zealand outdoors.
They’re also in a unique position to reach a broad community of participants and supporters of Te Araroa, both domestic and international, as a sponsor of a New Zealand national icon.
Your contribution will be recognised with branding on Te Araroa’s website and promotional materials, a profile on the website and our social media channels, invitations to Te Araroa events, and access to an audience of thousands of walkers, hundreds of businesspeople and an untold number of supporters.
If you’re interested in joining us on our journey, find out more about becoming a sponsor by contacting Te Araroa Trust Chief Executive Mark Weatherall - 021 132 4519 or mark@teararoa.org.nz
