Hauraki Naturally is an internet-based collective of ordinary people who enjoy and promote the freedom of a clothing-optional lifestyle. Although our administrative base is located on the Northern Hauraki Plains, we have a membership that extends throughout New Zealand and abroad.
Our primary aim is to combat and remove the long-engrained taboos, shame and sexual connotations that typify people's attitudes towards the naked human body, to educate society on the many physical and mental health benefits of spending time without clothing, and to normalise nudity as a respectable standard of casual dress code in appropriate public situations. Simply being naked in appropriate situations is not illegal in New Zealand.
Membership to Hauraki Naturally is open to anyone with a genuine interest in a clothes-free lifestyle and we offer a wealth of information, including member forums, articles of interest, and loads of support. The right to choose what or what not to wear belongs to everyone and therefore we have no age restriction, provided that your use of the website does not violate your country's laws. We do, however, have certain restrictions and other protective measures in place for those under age 18.
New Zealand offers some great opportunities to be free of the restrictions of clothing in a variety of fabulous locations. If you'd love to shed those clothes and spend time naked, then we hope you can find what you're looking for here.
Hauraki Naturally is unlike most Naturist or Sun Clubs in New Zealand. We do not have our own land or buildings or private facilities. Our "club grounds" are the great New Zealand outdoors! Most of our activities take place in public locations generally accessible by anyone.
We are not affiliated with the New Zealand Naturist Federation or any "landed" club. While those clubs offer great facilities and a secure environment, Hauraki Naturally exists for those who, for various reasons, cannot access those clubs or don't relate to the club scene. Some of us don't even relate to the "Naturist" or "Nudist" label, simply regarding being naked as just another unremarkable clothing style.
Hauraki Naturally is free to join. We have no membership fees, so we are very affordable.
Hauraki Naturally is internet-based and we have members all over New Zealand. Therefore we are not far away! We provide a facility to allow members to organise their own social events with others in their own location.
Hauraki Naturally is open to everyone. Apart from misconduct or inappropriate behaviour, we do not refuse membership on any discriminatory grounds.
Hauraki Naturally is not fixated on "gender balance". We do not refuse membership to single males.
Hauraki Naturally exists for all kinds of Naturists - social types, solo types, "At Home" naturists, - however and whenever you enjoy a clothes-free life, we're here for you!
