Owner description: Six nights a week the marae is transformed into a magical setting where performers from the Culture North night show tell visitors to Northland the real story of New Zealand. A contemporary production combining drama, music and dance, the show relates the traditional story of how two cultures; Maori and European, settled in New Zealand.

“Interesting Show”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2012

The show was interesting and quite well done. I would have preferred to have a more comprehensive talk on the Maori culture and history before the show. I thought the cost of the show was expensive for what we got. I would recommend it - learning about Maori culture & tradition is an important part of a trip to NZ.
