Explore the history of Ngāti Toa Rangatira iwi (tribe) on a tour of Wellington’s stunning west coast, followed by a kapu tī at Hongoeka Marae.

On this fascinating bus tour, hear legends and stories about historic landmarks, significant tūpuna (ancestors), fierce battles, key families, and building innovative industries. Visit Hongoeka Marae in Plimmerton for a welcoming kapu tī (cup of tea) and find out about the iwi today as they look towards the future.

Bring your camera, and a packed lunch (or we can provide lunch for $10). You could also buy food from Te Papa Cafe before departure.
