Owner description: Waitangi Treaty Grounds, New Zealand's most important historic site, is where the Treaty of Waitangi was signed between the British Crown and the indigenous Maori in February 1840. Set on a stunning site overlooking the Bay of Islands, Waitangi is an absolute must-see for all visitors to the North, international and New Zealanders alike. Attractions include the historic Treaty House, a giant flagstaff, a unique fully carved Maori meeting house and the the world's largest single-hulled canoe (waka). Guided tours and cultural performances run at regular intervals throughout the day. Open daily except Christmas.

“Interesting history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2012

The grounds are lovely with beautiful springtime gardens for walking, but the added attractions of the canoes made from gigantic Kauri logs, the Marae, the treaty house and the movie which explained the signing of the treaty made the experience even more pleasant.
