Waitangi Treaty Grounds

Price from £13 per person

The Waitangi Treaty Grounds, overlooking the beautiful Bay of Islands, are one of New Zealand's most important historic sites. It was here on February 6th, 1840 that the founding document of New Zealand, The Treaty of Waitangi (Te Tiriti o Waitangi), was first signed between the eminent Maori Chiefs and the British Crown. The Treaty House was originally built for the first British Resident James Busby and his family, and it is one of New Zealand's oldest and most visited historic homes.

This is a self guided discovery tour encompassing the house and its historic displays, a fully carved Maori Meeting House, a traditional Maori War Canoe and the extensive grounds.
