    Waitangi Day Experience

    This is a must see activity for both locals and overseas visitors. You need to devote a day to take full advantage of the tour, cultural activity, museum visit, Treay House & Meeting House visits and wood carving workshop as well as to just enjoy the gardens and surrounds. It is an extra special deal with bookme.co.nz. Fantastic value!

    Waitangi Treaty Grounds

    My husband and I had a great afternoon at Waitangi Treaty Grounds. A convenient short walk from the wharf with friendly staff ready to greet you. Our guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining as he showed around the grounds and the war canoes. The new museum is fantastic with its interactive displays but best of all was the cultural performance. The team with their amazing singing and dancing were the highlight. Excellent!
