Tourism and education - the recipe for Northland's Kupe Waka Centre

Northland’s new Kupe Waka Centre is pulling together tourism, education and business smarts to ensure it is a year-round sustainable and resilient business.

The Kupe Waka Centre, located in Aurere in the southern end of Doubtless Bay, is set to open for tourism in early 2021.

No stone unturned for Manea Footprints of Kupe opening 2020

The site is prepped, building is well underway, and connections are being forged in time for the opening of Opononi’s new Manea Footprints of Kupe.

The multi-million-dollar visitor attraction, located on 5 acres in the Hokianga, is set to open its doors to tourists late October.

Manaakitanga with Sakamoto San

Manaakitanga. It's a word you'll often heard said in New Zealand. There are many ways to define what it is, but my favourite meaning is that it's taking care of people they way you'd take care of your family (and sometimes, even better!)
