Balloons on the Beach

There will be 2 x Park & Ride stations on Sunday 21st October for Balloons on the Beach that you can pre-book online in Riwaka (Riwaka Rugby Club) and Motueka (Marchwood Park).

We have a very limited number of carparks available and pre-booking is essential. The shuttle bus will also be leaving from Decks Reserve Motueka, Marahau Beach Camp and the turnoff to Kaiteriteri Sandy Bay Road but we are unable to pre-allocate parking here and it will be on a first in first served basis only. We are operating 26 free shuttle buses for ticket-holders. You will need to present your ticket before boarding the bus. These will depart every 15 minutes from 2pm. The last bus out to Kaiteriteri will leave at 8pm and from there all buses will be dedicated to getting you home from Kaiteriteri to either Motueka, Marahau or Riwaka. 

Please be aware there may be delays with the buses depending on demand and we advise to please allow enough time to get to Kaiteriteri for the event.
