The building is in a great location nestled between large trees with views out to the harbour. While not a traditional Maori marae where you are welcomed in with a ceremony, it will be the first glimse for most international travellers of a traditonal style "Marae" building or Maori meeting house. You can take off your shoes and walk inside to see the intricate carvings on the walls, and appreciate this unique aspect of maori culture.
