Guinea Pig and Rabbit Shows in Northland, NZ


The Northern Rabbit and Cavy Club formed in 2011 in Whangarei, Northland and is for people to exhibit their rabbits and guinea pigs (cavy) in pedigree and pet shows.

We are an affiliated club to the following great organisations:

•  Rabbit Council of New Zealand

•  New Zealand Cavy Judges Association (for Independent New Zealand Cavy Clubs)

Exhibiting rabbits and guinea pigs is a fun and rewarding hobby.  We are a social and family friendly club and are all about having a good time.  A good way to bond with your guinea pigs and to keep an eye on their health and hopefully win some titles, championship points, ribbons and prizes together.

Don't miss out on the Fancy Dress Competitions, Pet Shows and Pedigree Shows.

Gold coin donation is appreciated at entry for the public.  New members of all ages are welcome with a small annual fee.

About the New Zealand Rabbit Council

The Rabbit Council of New Zealand is an organisation whose objectives include:

  • To protect, further and co-ordinate the interest of all New Zealand rabbit breeders.
  • To assist and extend the exhibition of rabbits.
  • To influence authorities, departments, education and other committees and schools in promoting the extension of breeding rabbits.

About the New Zealand Cavy Judges Association

The New Zealand Cavy Judges Association (NZCJA) was formed when purebred cavies were first imported into New Zealand by Jack Whitworth in 1976.  Jack began to train judges to the English standard and the Association was formed as a result.  NZCJA judges have been officiating at New Zealand cavy shows ever since.

Independent New Zealand Cavy Clubs are clubs which continue to hold shows under the rules and standards of the New Zealand Cavy Judges Association and are independent from the new body which was formed recently.

We continue to support our New Zealand unique and rare pedigree breeds and their exhibitors.  New Zealand cavy breeds should always be exhibited at shows in our own country, and not be excluded and forgotten about. 

Come to our shows for a chance to see some unique cavy breeds beautifully displayed on the show bench.
