The Katikati and Waihi Beach Community Awards are an acknowledgement of excellence in all sectors of the community within the Katikati and Waihi Beach region.
Both of our communities are unique, active and creative, a place where locals love to live, and visitors want to come back to. Waihi Beach strives to be the best seaside village in NZ and Katikati is overflowing with the arts and proud to be the Avocado Capital of NZ. But these achievements aren't something that just happens. A tremendous amount of passionate work goes in behind the scenes of all our wonderful communities and business organisations. These awards are a chance to recognise those important and hard working groups and individuals.
