What we will do
- We leave the port on our coach and cross the Harbour Bridge to reach the Auckland War Memorial Museum, one of the most important buildings in the country offering a spectacular view of Auckland and of the Waitemata port. Three floors illustrate the history of New Zealand - from its birth as a nation to its unique natural history down to the priceless Maori treasures.
- The Maori are the indigenous people of New Zealand, called Aotearoa in Maori language. The Auckland Museum displays the largest and most valuable collection of their treasures in the world. Over 1000 taonga (treasures) are on display, and the collection was improved in 2003 by Te Kakano with a resource centre to provide information on Maori and Pacific culture.
- After this journey through history, we get back on our coach and continue to Auckland’s Sky Tower. The tower is 328 m tall and offers unparalleled views of the city. It is the tallest building in the southern hemisphere.
