Further details about Waitangi Anniversary Weekend
Waitangi is situated at the most northerly point on the North Islands and it is one of the most important historical areas in New Zealand. It was here in 1840 that the treaty between the British and Maori was signed.
This is definitely the place to go if you want to find out more about the Maori culture. Visitors to the region can visit a Maori meeting house and see one of the largest Maori war canoes in NZ. There are also live kapahaka performances.
