Join us on this experience to gain cultural insights into the history of our forebears settlement on the shores of the harbour. We will take you from a migration Maori navigation compass to the sites of ancient pā (fortified villages) including one of Aotearoa’s (New Zealand) most historic battles. We round off the excursion with spectacular panoramic views of the harbour and surrounding coastlines. Includes an optional drop-off and pick-up at a selected local eatery to purchase lunch.
