Winter? What Winter? 

This July we're debunking the myth that Winter is for staying indoors by hosting 3 awesome events that promise to keep the blues away. Over eight of Devonport's eateries are pushing the culinary boat out and designing stunning Aotearoa-inspired dishes in the second week of Matariki, 1-7 July. 

Then there's the innovative take on the progressive dinner; The Travelling Fare that will see guests literally walk from restaurant to restaurant sampling four of those dishes, each matched with a perfectly suited NZ wine, every Tuesday through July. 

And finally, we're activating the ferry terminal in a Devonport-first Fashion Event, emceed by Pippa Wetzell and in support of Dress for Success, empowering women to return to financial indpendence by providing the tools they need to get back to the workforce.

These events are all part of the Elemental AKL winter programme. So grab your mates, and your coats, and spend your winter in Devonport.
