@ApartmaniPineta

Te Wharewaka o Pōneke Tours is a striking contemporary building representing Maori occupation of the site.  The building is conceived as a feather clock laid across the landscape.  The site was the home of  Te Aro Pa, a large Māori community until the 1880s. Visitors to the Wharewaka (waka house) can view three ceremonial waka.  You can book a waka or walking tour as an opportunity to discover Wellington’s hidden Maori heritage.

Open between 10.00am to 4.00pm daily

Guided tours are available, pre-booking is essential. Waka tours provide a Maori  experience on the water, and the walking tours explore Wellington Maori occupation.

Karaka Cafe specialises in traditional Māori cuisine, including hangi.
