Katikati Arts & History Day Trip from Bayfair, Mount Maunganui with your local Maori guide. Experience the history of local settlement, both Māori and non-Māori including through the arts.
We travel around the beautiful Tauranga Harbour to the Te Puna Quarry Park. Ponds to panoramic views, gardens to butterflies, the old quarry has become a magical place of special beauty. At the museum in Katikati experience the history of the changing settlement of the region. Purchase your lunch one of the many cafes that share the spirit of the local artisans.
After lunch enjoy a guided Mural Walk with the theme of “The History of Settlement, on the walls, presented by Professional Artists”. It has become a feature of Katikati known as the ‘Mural Town’. Before returning to Bayfair take a 40 min stroll through Haiku Park. Back at Bayfair enjoy a meal at Izakai, a Māori/Japan Bar and Eatery (we offer a $10 voucher redeemable on the day).
