MACK TRADITIONS

New Years Eve in Taupo
Foreign Family Xmas Dinner

New Years always an awesome night in Taupo. 

This is where a lot of the North Island shearers and shedstaff come together to celebrate the new year. Not to be missed!

Homesick? Not here ya' not!

We've been hosting Xmas for our foreign family for a few years now. We put on a spread in Taihape for all our foreign staff, mates welcome.

Just give Charlie a call on 0272511111
