Name the new playground

“Toot Toot Taku”

Congratulations Calvin Cox for naming the new playground!

Thank you to everyone who submitted a new name for the tug we had some great entries. You can read them all in the comment area below.

Cheers, Taku Crew

We invite everyone to join our naming contest for the new playground.

Lynden found this old tug at a neighbouring property and is now in the process of rebuilding it into a fun playground. You can help him by coming up with a new name and sharing a story to support your entry. Any photos submitted are also welcomed.

The prize will be a boat trip for four people on the TAKU S.E.A. during your next stay. We’ll take you out on a tour of the area and see if we can get some fresh prawns. The boat trip will be weather permitting and can not be exchanged for cash value.

Enter the contest by sending us an email to or add your entry into the comments area below. Take a look at all the entries below to get some ideas of what to submit.

We look forward to hearing fun stories about your time at Taku!
