Experience the warmth of the Maori people during an evening of ceremonial rituals, powerful cultural performance, storytelling and hangi feasting!
Share in the Powhiri; our ancient ceremony of welcome before you are invited into our Pre-European Maori village nestled within the native Tawa forest.
Enter our living village, as it comes alive with the sights, sounds and activity of days gone by. Witness the earth being scraped carefully away from the hangi pit by your selected Chiefs, to reveal baskets laden with your sumptuous, mouth watering feast.
At the heart of the Village, enter our ancestral Meeting House, and relax as our family entertain you with a powerful Cultural performance.
Dine on the traditional hangi buffet feast, followed by our New Zealand dessert. The evening draws to an end with the Poroporoaki – the official closing ceremony as we farewell our visitors.
