How about a weekend celebrating Charlie Douglas. Sounds like a good excuse to get down to South Westland this winter...

"The Department of Conservation, Heritage New Zealand, Heritage Hokitika and Hokitika Museum are together commemorating 100 years since the death of the great Westland explorer, surveyor and map maker, Charlie Douglas. We are planning to hold this event Queen’s Birthday weekend 2016 (4-6 June). The weekend will feature a museum exhibit, DoC-led walks in South Westland tracing some of Douglas’ iconic explorations, a historic walk from Hokitika to Douglas’ grave site, and recreating Douglas’s famous meeting with Richard Seddon. A high point will be the evening event held on Saturday 4th June in the Hokitika Regent Theatre. The night will feature some classic West Coast yarns, music, socialising, and drinks, themed around Charlie Douglas and West Coast exploration."
