2023 Hereworth 4WD Trek

Tutira 3 - 5 March 2023

Due to Cyclone Gabrielle, this event is now cancelled. Please read below for further details. 

Dear Hereworth 4WD community,

It is with huge disappointment that we have to CANCEL the 2023 Hereworth 4WD Event due to the massive destruction caused by Cyclone Gabrielle.

Our first thoughts are with all the families so badly affected by the Cyclone. Our hosts, Max and Lucy Tweedie, have had their property in Tutira completely devastated, as have most of the farming properties we were to trek through. It’s quite unbelievable, and we send them all our thoughts and strength.

We will look to refund everyone in full, this might take a week or so as internet, power and telecommunications in Hawke's Bay remain somewhat sporadic.

However, this event was to be our main fundraiser to help boys and girls get to experience Hereworth, so if anyone wishes to donate their ticket fee or a portion of it to our scholarship fund, please let us know by emailing us at hereworth4wd@gmail.com. This would be hugely appreciated.  


Again, we are so grateful to our wonderful sponsors and we remain very excited to have Hawke's Bay Motors Ltd  as our new naming sponsor.

Thank you all so much for having registered to come on the Hereworth 4WD event. For some of you, this is will be your 3rd cancellation and hugely disappointing to say the least. 

Our thoughts are with all those so badly impacted by this cyclone. It is going to take a long time for many of them to get their farms and homes back to normal.

We will look to have this event in 2024, so please stay safe and we hope to see you all in the near future. Thank you for your understanding and patience.

Kind regards,

The Hereworth 4WD team
