Join friends and whānau, old and new, for a day of music, food and waka fun on the Petone Foreshore, part two of A Waka Odyssey.

Stand on the beach where the great Pacific explorer Kupe stood more than 700 years ago. Watch a magnificent fleet of waka hourua (traditional double-hulled sailing canoes) and waka taua (war canoes) sail up to shore, as we continue the celebration of waka voyaging and our place in the Pacific.

With the waka landing on the beach, Moana fans and their families can get up close and climb on board. Meet the navigators and their crew and find out more about their journeys, and about star navigation. The party continues all afternoon with live music, DJs, cultural performances, food stalls and more.

Haere mai, come on board.
