What's On Now

Pink shirt day on Friday 20 May is the day Aotearoa comes together to take a stand against bullying.

By wearing a pink shirt, you’re showing you’re committed to creating a kinder, more inclusive Aotearoa where everyone feels safe, valued, and respected regardless of gender identity, sexual orientation, age, ability, religion or cultural background.

The Cable Car team are joining the movement to reduce bullying by celebrating diversity in all its forms. Come grab a photo in front of our Cable Car cut out and rainbow balloon garlands, take a snap of the tunnel lights or donate here to show your support to stand up against bullying.
