Glorious Bay of Plenty: Rich Land, Rich Culture


Explore the incredible abundance and productivity of the land in the aptly named Bay of Plenty. Meet a Maori family who are descendants of the migrants who arrived on the first ocean-going canoes from central Polynesia more than 650 years ago. Hear their stories and enjoy their songs and dances as they trace their family history through the generations. Almost all of New Zealand’s world-famous kiwifruit crop is grown on this small pocket of land. Marvel at the extraordinary volume and quality of fruit produced here. Shop for gifts and souvenirs in the retail shop. Enjoy an exclusive visit (not open to the general public) to the stunning coastal headland site of a centuries-old Maori fortification with stunning, 360-degree panoramic views and a prized, strategic location that has been ardently contested by neighboring Maori tribes.
