New Zealand Rural Highland Games Heavies TransTasman Competition

We’re proud to present the sixth annual New Zealand Rural Highland Games ‘Heavies’ Competition in association with regional Highland Games associations around Aotearoa.

This event is massive (in every way!) – a real crowd pleaser. Kilted warriors from Australia and New Zealand compete once again in a number of traditional ‘heavy’ events from the caber toss, stones, farmer’s walk and weight over bar.

Made famous at iconic Highland Games in Hororata, Waipu and Paeroa, this is your only chance to see these awesome athletes compete in The Square, Palmerston North to decide our new overall champion Braveheart.
