Spend an evening celebrating the local Maori people and culture at the Tamaki Maori Village. Be welcomed by a whakatau ceremony, prepare your own puku burger, savour Maori-style canapes and tasters in the forest, enjoy Kapahaka and live music and tuck into a delicious dessert by firelight.
Deepen your connection with the local Tamaki people, history and culture during this interactive twilight experience at the Tamaki Maori Village. On arrival, you'll be welcomed by a whakatau ceremony, celebrating their interconnectedness with each other and the land before collectively preparing dinner - a special fried bread invented at the village. Whilst dinner is cooking, you'll wander into the Tawa forest where you'll enjoy a selection of Maori-style canapes and tasters like buttery corn cobs, boil up broth, mussels and smoked fish. Be treated to a pre-dinner drink as you meander through the heart of the village, before being seated for an al fresco dinner, featuring Kapahaka and live music. After dinner, wander by lantern lights for dessert in a secret forest alcove, sharing stories by firelight.
Please advise any special dietary requirements at the time of booking.
