Culture and Heritage

Step back in time and experience the Bay of Islands as it used to be at the Culture North show in Waitangi. Then explore the museums, take a historical tour and walk the early Maori pa sites. Bring yourself back to the present with a trip around some of Northland’s wineries.

There is wealth of cultural and heritage activities on offer that will give you the full flavour of life in the Far North. Learn about the Treaty of Waitangi (there's a little bit about this on our history page) and explore how our Maori and European descendents gradually came together to form today's Kiwi identity.
