You could be titiro ki ngā whetu, stargazing on the beautiful waters of Te Pēwhairangi, discovering and tasting our delicious local kai produce, and listening to inspiring kōrero paki – storytellers, all in one day.
The Matariki Puanga event runs over 2 weeks in locations around the Bay of Islands, Taitokerau, Aotearoa.
