Having been here a few times before I have come to the conclusion it is over-priced if you are not a citizen but absolutely still worth it. The veiws are fantasic and sweepign across the "islands", however not unlike many other spots around. The forest board-walk was a highlight for me as it offers a unique view on the native trees and bird but the Marae and meeting house were very interesting to look at, followed by a walk through the garden and marvelling at the age of the trees. Would not pay for a guided tour or show as it doesn't appear very authentic and the guide we heard speaking was slow and patronising and was practically reading off the signs. Still its the history and birth of a nation and you can't really miss it. Good for a more relaxed day in the Bay of Islands.
