Discover fun adventures with our guidebooks
Tired of the same walks? Explore hundreds of family-friendly adventures from Auckland, Rotorua, Hamilton, Waikato, Taupo, Ohakune and Mount Ruapehu.
Walks from five minutes to overnight hut adventures. Clamber through limestone caves, climb tree-top platforms or paddle in swimming holes surrounded by native forest.
Accessibility for buggies, bikes, little legs and wheelchairs
There's nothing worse than meeting stairs mid-adventure with a buggy or bike...aghhh! We have been there and that's what inspired us to write our guidebooks.
Concise and accurate walk descriptions. Adventures should be fun with no melt-downs!
Struggling to keep kids entertained outdoors?
No problem. Our guidebooks have official Department of Conservation Toyota Kiwi Guardian activity sheets, and loads of bug/bird/tree/bark identification sheets to keep kids engaged along the way.
And if that is not enough, download our FREE activity sheets to play bingo and make cool stuff.
We love, love, love your books of big little adventures. Our goal is to do as many as we can in 2020 with our bub.
This has been fantastic for our summer! Something different to do each week.
Our B&B guests love it and it they have done quite a few of the walks - one family were on a tight budget and ended up basing their five day stay with us around the walks in your book.
Our family really enjoys getting outdoors and walking and are looking forward to going on some new walks we’ve discovered in your Auckland guidebook.
We’ve been to loads of cool places…so thank you! Your books are fantastic. Have been raving about it to friends and neighbours here. So beautifully produced. Please do more!
The Outdoor Kid team
The Outdoor Kid guidebooks are written by former hut warden and journalist Ceana, and 'product tested' by her intrepid son Finn (4yo).
"I grew up living and working near Tongariro National Park with summers spent exploring alpine walks, and making forest huts. So, when Finn was born I wanted him to experience an outdoorsy childhood. But when he was tiny I couldn't find buggy-friendly places to explore, or walks suitable for his growing little legs.
So we started exploring hundreds of adventures to share with other outdoorsy families."
