Owner description: Waitangi Treaty Grounds, New Zealand's most important historic site, is where the Treaty of Waitangi was signed between the British Crown and the indigenous Maori in February 1840. Set on a stunning site overlooking the Bay of Islands, Waitangi is an absolute must-see for all visitors to the North, international and New Zealanders alike. Attractions include the historic Treaty House, a giant flagstaff, a unique fully carved Maori meeting house and the the world's largest single-hulled canoe (waka). Guided tours and cultural performances run at regular intervals throughout the day. Open daily except Christmas.

Walked 2km from Paihia easy. Spent most day wandering around after guided tour great guy real character. Then cultural performance great too. Museum done really well easy to spend couple hours in here. Gift shop quite expensive. Go if you get chance.

Fabulous evening, commentary glass of wine, explanation of hangi cooking and lifting of the food to start with. Welcome procedure walking up through the bush with the challenge, conch shell call and koauau sounds mixed with birds and bush was beautiful experience. I have not experienced that approach before and loved it. Then concert in the meeting house followed by return to restaurant and the excellent and well presented food from the hangi. A value for money experience highly recommended.

As we came in via a cruise ship they offered a 20% discount on the entry fee. The entry fee included a guided tour with an extremely knowledgeable guide, a fantastic cultural performance and the chance to wander through the very new, interactive museum and the beautiful forest walks. Well worth going.

The museum is the real highlight here. So informative and presented in a variety of accessible ways. We could have spent a day just in the museum.

The Hangi was fabulous. The walk through the bush with challenges from the Maori chiefs was very exciting with Maori calls all around. The concert was the highlight for me. The tribute to the 25th Maori Battalion was very emotional and their performance was excellent. Well done Waitangi and their staff for an excellent evening. Thoroughly recommend this experience to all.
