Waka and Walking Tours

Nau mai, haere mai ki Te Wharewaka o Pōneke!

Welcome to Te Wharewaka o Pōneke!


When visiting Wellington why not take the opportunity to experience and share in the rich culture and history of Wellington (Te Whanganui a Tara) and Taranaki Whānui through our Waka (Māori Canoe) or Walking tours.

Te Wharewaka o Pōneke waka and walking guided tours are unique Māori cultural experiences that all can enjoy. Take a walk into the past to learn the history of Wellington from the first explorers to the present day from a Māori perspective, or you can enjoy the sun and the water on the beautiful Wellington harbour waterfront while learning an ancient style of paddling and stories associated with the harbour.

Here is a little video of us in action.
