The journey

1

Takapūneke

One of New Zealand’s most important historic sites. We spend 45mins here learning the rich narrative. Soon to be discovered by the masses, see it now as the locals always have.

2

Ōnuku Marae

Stunning Māori cultural centre on the edge of Akaroa harbour. Immerse yourself in what makes New Zealand unique and special.

3

Akaroa Heritage Park

Home made morning tea on a hilltop overlooking the beautiful French town of Akaroa. Slow down and connect to this gorgeous place.

4

Hinewai Reserve

“Long live the weeds and the wilderness yet”. You will be inspired by this wilderness reserve and how it’s benefiting life on earth, from the vision of one man, Hugh Wilson.

Nature

Protect for the seventh generation coming after you… 

Do less, allow nature to regenerate, become a kaitiaki or guardian.

Experience the BEST of our nature conservation projects with a trained ecologist.

History

Keeping in mind the seven (or more) generations that came before…

Connect, know who you are and where you belong, your tūrangawaewae, the place you stand.

Be AMAZED with Akaroa’s history that is undervalued and undiscovered, told by a seven generation local historian.

Culture

For those faces that are coming from beneath the earth that are yet unborn…

Act with respect, manakitanga, hosting guests with warmth and telling stories well so that you leave better. 

Hear the stories of INCREDIBLE locals who are changing the earth for the better, understand the people of this place that make it special.

"Ka mua, ka muri" is a whakatauki that means "walking backwards into the future"
