Embark on a multi-sensory journey of discovery as you learn the story of Kupe's voyage. Led by Kupe’s descendants, you will take a tour of the centre's grounds, incorporating storytelling, interpretation of carvings, song, prayers and more. End with a 4D movie that brings to life his epic story.
Located by Opononi beach and against a backdrop of stunning sand dunes and sea, this cultural centre sets the perfect stage to learn about the legendary story of Kupe and his arrival to Aotearoa's shores. Your guided tour, led by Kupe's descendants, gives you an understanding of Maori customs and protocols and allows you to engage with storytelling, waiata (song) and karakia (prayers), ending in a powhiri (welcome ceremony). Following the tour, you'll take a seat for a 4D movie and live theatre performance, bringing to life his voyage and the dramatic return journey of his descendants. From the theatre, you'll be led outside to soak in the splendour of Hokianga harbour and Kupe's story.

That’s 10% of the Australian population! When we started ‘doing’ experiences in 2001, Facebook didn’t exist; the iPod had just been invented; John Howard was Prime Minister; and Destiny's Child were popular (yikes!). We’ve been at this business of experiences for quite a while, so put your trust in us to show you a good time.
The RedBalloon Price Guarantee does not apply to experiences involving accommodation or Experience Providers' own conditional sales.
