This unique event in November every year is best described as a traditional Scottish Highland Games with a Kiwi twist. The competitions are at the heart of the event and the Games are the only event in the South Island that offers all the traditional Scottish competitions.
The Selwyn District
Selwyn stretches across the great Canterbury Plains and is bounded by the Rakaia and Waimakariri Rivers, with Arthur’s Pass National Park in the Southern Alps to the west and the Pacific Ocean to the east.
Stay in Selwyn
