NZ Rural Highland Games Heavies TransTasman Competition

We’re proud to present the fourth annual New Zealand Rural Highland Games ‘Heavies’ Competition in association with ITM and 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 plus a gut-busting Case IH tractor pull.

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.
