Tuia 250

Tuia te muka tangata ki uta.

Weaving people together for a shared future.

The Tuia - Encounters 250 national commemoration celebrates Aotearoa New Zealand’s Pacific voyaging heritage and acknowledges the first onshore encounters between Māori and Pākehā in 1769–70. There are events happening now in regions right around the country.

Follow the Tuia 250 Voyage from October to December. Join the journey by experiencing the vessels onboard when they land. Crews are offering family-friendly opportunities to learn about Pacific, Māori and European sailing and navigation traditions through interactive activities, displays, star domes, guest speakers, roadshow trucks and more.
