Welcome to Hilux New Zealand Rural Games

Welcome to the website for the first ever Hilux New Zealand Rural Games!

Take a while to look around and find out more about the two-day celebration of ‘sports that built the nation’ in Queenstown next February. The events pages will tell you all about the traditional sports programme including sheep dog trials, speed gold panning and coal shovelling as well as the festival surrounding them with fun for all the family.

Over the next few weeks we’ll be confirming the full programme and telling you more about New Zealand’s rural heritage. We’ll also be posting more news soon but make sure you sign up to our email newsletter to be among the first to hear about some of the world class athletes competing.

See you in Queenstown next February!
