Don’t forget whanau, the annual Woodskills festival is on this weekend in Kawerau.  Great family day out.

Kawerau Woodfest in the Bay of Plenty is an A&P show for wood – a showcase of the artistic side of working with wood along with a host of other activities associated with the wood industry.

The cornerstone of Kawerau Woodfest is the National Woodskills Competition – a huge crowd-puller for over 20 years. With events such as the wood chopping competition, you’ll be transported back to an era when the axe was king.
