The Tuia 250 flotilla comes together for the very first time out on the bay.

Come witness history in the making as these two great voyaging traditions meet and pay homage to this place we call home. The community is encouraged to pick a favourite vantage point, indulge in a leisurely picnic brekky and take in the spectacle as the Tuia 250 flotilla enter Tūranganui a Kiwa (Poverty Bay). These heritage vessels will arrive early to pay homage to the community and its history of migration and settlement.

Vendors and family friendly activities will be scattered along the Oneroa walkway so that everyone has their coffee, can grab something to eat and relax. There are plenty of ways to spend time acquainting yourself with eons of history here in Gisborne, from the award winning Tūpapa heritage trail to the local museum, while the crews visit sites of significance and are hosted privately at a civic reception.

This event is part of the Tuia – Encounters 250 programme.
