New Zealand – the  Turakina Highland Games

A committee member of the Abernethy Games grew up in the southern part of New Zealand’s North Island. When visiting he was warmly welcomed by the Grants in the Turakina Games so it was agreed to twin the two Games from the opposing hemispheres. The Turakina Games were established in 1846 so are even older than the Games in Nethy!

Australia – The 2013 Nethy Games Chieftain, the Rev Jim McEwan lives in Nethy but has connections in Australia at Bunadoon. During the annual Bunadoon Highland Gathering the town takes on the name of Brigadoon!
