Nau mai haere mai ki Orākei Marae, which basically means come one come all to Orākei Marae – the only ancestral marae in central Auckland. On this special day you’ll hear the story of the Ngāti Whātua, whose history dates back to the very beginnings of Māori migration from Hawaiiki, learn a haka, have a go at raranga (weaving) and run around on Bastion Point.

This is an Adventure Seekers activity for children aged 5 -14 years old.
This is an offsite activity (check! – a few are onsite activities).
Please wear or bring the recommended clothing and footwear.

Note for Busy Parents - remember you can drop your children off with us from as early as 7.30am and pick them up as late as 6pm at no extra charge.

- In all activities, we place children in compatible age groups to ensure they have the best time.

- At all our activities and at all times we ensure there are staff qualified in First Aid treatment.

- We take the best care of your children – most of our staff are trainee primary school teachers and all our programmes meet Department of Child, Youth and Family Services standards.
