Enjoy a guided visit to the Waitangi Treaty Grounds, the site of the Waitangi Treaty signing between the British and the Maori. Referred to as the 'Birthplace of the Nation', Waitangi weaves together stories of people, events, and places to reveal New Zealand’s rich cultural history. Explore the Te Rau Aroha Museum of the Price of Citizenship and Te Kongahu Museum of Waitangi, and visit Treaty House, Te Whare Runanga, and traditional Maori waka taua. You’ll also join a powhiri (welcome), an immersive cultural performance featuring waiata (songs), poi, and a traditional haka (war dance). Afterwards, chat and take photos with the performers.
