Waitangi Waka Display

The Waitangi Maori Waka Display is located on the Waitangi Treaty Grounds.


This is one of the most impressive displays at Waitangi. You can see the sheer size of the main waka (Maori canoe) under the purpose built shelter. It is at least 30 metres long and would have carried 60 paddlers. These waka were made by hand, usually out of a single tree trunk. The Waitangi Waka Display is definitely worth a look when you are in the Bay Of Islands.
