A stunning fundraising event described as the perfect day out with friends is set to wow home fanatics for the fifth time in Whangarei.

The biennial Hospice House Tour will be held over the weekend of 11 and 12 November this year and calls for anyone with a passion for home décor, DIY, design and home living to rally up their friends and book the weekend in.

Since 2009, the first four tours raised over $80,000 proving that these tours are 'no school bingo night'; they promise to deliver for both North Haven Hospice and eager ticket holders.

Generous owners of beautiful and creative Whangarei homes have agreed to open their doors for two full days in November for ticket holders to explore. Event organisers The Girls' Club pledge that the houses each hold special features ensuring that a diverse range of tastes will be met and event goers will leave with a tonne of inspiration, tips and tricks.


The house locations remain a mystery until a few days prior to the event when an itinerary will be emailed to ticket holders in time to plan their travelling route. The organisers have a delicious handmade, gourmet lunch option available to purchase with the tickets, making it a truly hassle-free day out!

The event is run by The Girls' Club, a group of regular, everyday women who have been touched by the selfless work from North Haven Hospice at some stage in their lives. Levonne, Briar, Pam, Claire, Jo, Kayla and Sue each bring different skills and talents to the fundraising team and all share a love for home décor, colours, patterns, DIY and creativity.

Girls' Club member, Kayla Tattley says that "In its fifth year the tour is at a stage now where people expect to see something they haven't seen before so the pressure to deliver is really high. These supporters know they are going to find a favourite to fall in love with, that's why they keep coming back".

The weekend is renowned for being interesting, well organized and a tonne of fun. To buy tickets and to learn more about the 2017 tour or any of the past tours, visit
