21 May - 18 Aug: Maritime Support for Fiji - HMNZS Taupo
- The Navy’s inshore patrol vessel HMNZS Taupo will spend three months conducting maritime patrols in Fiji. The NZDF, with support from the Ministry for Primary Industries, will help Fiji patrol its vast Exclusive Economic Zone and train its Navy sailors for the second consecutive year. The patrols by HMNZS Taupo, in support of the Republic of Fiji Navy, will involve the usual compliance monitoring activities, which include two Fishery Officers from New Zealand’s Ministry for Primary Industries assisting with boarding and inspection of vessels.

29-31 May: School Concerts - Navy Band
- A bit of Star Wars. Something from Moana. The key tune from Despicable Me. And some Neil Diamond for good measure. There will be a little bit of everything to impress Kaikoura primary school children and the residents of the township this week when the Royal New Zealand Navy band hits town. The band will also play at Ward and Seddon primary schools. Like other elements of the New Zealand Defence Force, the Navy played a large role in helping Kaikoura, its residents and tourists following the devastating earthquake in November 2016.

Tuesday, 29 May:
11am – Kaikoura Primary School
