Battle of the Bands

Fulljames is our first trip of the year and by far the biggest! It's a massive weekend full of kayaking, rafting and camping. This year, any partying will be occurring on the pub crawl or in a pub in Taupo - we're aiming to be super respectful of other campers at NEC.

In 2023 our theme is 'Battle of the Bands'.

10th-12th March 2023

Nga awa purua rapids,
Waikato River, Taupo

Keep an eye on your email inbox for the sign up link - opening 24th Feb, closing 5th March

This trip is for everyone (18+), whether you’ve never been in a kayak or are a pro coming to surf some whitewater - you are guaranteed a good time!


Fulljames is a weekend full of whitewater and a bit of partying! Costumes to theme are compulsory. "Battle of the Bands" think all things rock....ABBA, Spice girls, KISS, Vengaboys and more.


We’ll drive to Taupō on Friday evening, spend Saturday kayaking & rafting on the mighty Waikato river and then spend the evening socialising at camp (with the option heading into a pub in Taupō in true AUCC style). We’ll be back on the river for Sunday morning, and then pack up to head back to Auckland. 


General Admission:

- $50 for members (of AUCC, VUCC and other approved whitewater clubs)

- $60 for non members

OR upgrade to the PARTY BUS for an additional $50 (Members only)


All tickets include gear hire, camping and access to the river. 
Fulljames is an R18 event run by AUCC, a student club.

To attend you MUST buy a ticket. Responding on Facebook is not enough. Not buying a ticket and showing up on the day is trespassing.
