2020 official merchandise now available
We have combined with Cabin Supply Co to provide official merchandise for Te Araroa. The design captures the essence of Te Araroa. You can buy have tee-shirts, caps, patches and stickers. The proceeds go to Te Araroa Trust so we can continue to make Te Araroa the walk of your lifetime. We have limited stock for our initial launch so be in quick.
The design gives a nod to Te Araroa's logo with its ti kouka tree (cabbage tree). This is the same ti kouka you see on Te Araroa's signs and boundary markers. The backdrop of two mountains represents Aotearoa's two main islands.
