takahē appears three times a year, in April, August and December.

Within New Zealand, most main public libraries and university libraries have recent copies on display, and smaller libraries can usually supply them on request.

Annual subscriptions are for the two physical issues, mailed within New Zealand, or mailed (by economy airmail) to any overseas location. Please use the form below for all subscriptions.

The on-line issue is available without payment and can be accessed from early August until early December by choosing the ‘Current Issue’ option from the main menu on the takahē website.

After many years of keeping the subscription rates steady, rising costs mean we now have to increase these rates.
The new rates (as of 2016) are:

New Zealand:   $30.00 (1 year, 2 issues)
Overseas:    NZ $40.00 (1 year, 2 issues)

  • Payment by direct credit should be to account #02-0800-0420716-00, account name The Takahe Collective Trust, using your surname in the reference field, and the number of the issue you wish your subscription to start from in the particulars field.
  • Payments by cheque should be made out to The Takahe Collective Trust and posted to: Takahē Magazine, Box 13-335, Christchurch 8141, New Zealand.
  • Overseas payments may be made via PayPal – please make your payment via the PayPal button below before submitting your subscription details on this form.

Limited stock of back copies (up to takahē 68 – December 2009 ) are available: NZ$10.00 each.
Limited stock of more recent back copies (from takahē 69 – April 2010 ) are available:  NZ$15.00 each.
