Big Buddy Major Partner Fantail & Turtle

Big Buddy Major Partner

Fantail and Turtle was crowned the #1 Gastro Pub in New Zealand in 2024, and we are thrilled to have them onboard as one of our Major Partners. 

The bar and eatery can be found on Auckland's North Shore, right in the middle of Takapuna's bustling Goodside at Smales Farm.  

Owner Travis Field, GM James Wakefield and Ops Manager Aroha Shepherd are the driving force behind their consistent support of the Big Buddy cause.

Since 2019 Fantail & Turtle have closed their doors to host exclusive fundraiser lunches in support of Big Buddy. Businesses and individuals alike thoroughly enjoy a sumptuous long lunch for a worthy cause - it's fun, it's social, and everyone knows they are making a positive difference. 

Through these fundraising lunches, Fantail & Turtle have raised well over $300,000 for Big Buddy – and their drive to do more only continues to grow!  

If you are interested in attending our next event at Fantail & Turtle please pre-register your details by email and the team will be in touch with you once tickets are on sale.
