Te Pā Tū

Authentic Māori Experiences

Te Pā Tū presents seasonal culture and kai (cuisine) events – sharing Māori history, traditions, and future aspirations across three hours of celebration and feasting. Their experiences align with the maramataka (Māori lunar calendar). Tū Te Ihi spans the time of year when the Matariki cluster of stars sit high and bright in our winter skies. Tū Te Rā celebrates summer, the time when the sun expresses optimal energy, the days are longer, and light nourishes the natural world.

Just 10 minutes to the departure point (Te Pā Tū Gathering Place) from the lodge, this experience is one you won't want to miss.
