New Zealand Gathering - Buller Region 2016 

The Menzies Clan Gathering in New Zealand takes place every second year, alternating between the North Island and South Island. Next time, in 2016, it will be the turn of the South Island.

The 9th New Zealand Clan Gathering will take place in the Buller Region, centred around Westpost on the North West of the South Island in March 2016. More details will be published here as planning progresses.

2014 NZ Gathering

The last NZ Gathering took place at Porirua, near Wellington in March 2014. A tour of the beautiful Kapiti coast was included. All Clan Society members enjoyed it and the organisers were very pleased with another successful Gathering.


Here are two letters about the Gathering from Bobbi Gibbons, Chairperson of the Organising Committee and Dennis Menzies, the Clan Chief's Commissioner in New Zealand:

More photos of the 2014 event will be available here soon.

So, if you are thinking about a trip to New Zealand, why not time it for March 2016 and join your Clansmen for a great weekend, with a wonderful welcome!
