    From $155

Embrace our History and Culture: Watch our stories unfold through the dynamic scenes of our warriors paddling down Wai-o-Whiro stream, the melodious sounds of our instruments, and entertainment from our performers sharing the haka or war dance to poi dances and more.

We will invite you to walk through our ngahere (forest) to see the ancient, fortified village learning the old ways of living and survival of our people. Discover the natural resource Te Puna a Tuhoe, our sacred freshwater spring.

The evening is not over until you glimpse the glow worms light up the banks of the forest as the veil of darkness engulfs the forest. Buffet, the delicious tempting traditional hangi food of the Great Ocean of Kiwa: Your hāngī earth oven kai (food) includes meat, chicken, kumara, and much more.
