    What a stunning place to visit. Excellent new museums and updated information in the Treaty House. Very wonderful cultural experience in the Te Whare Runanga, followed by lovely hot drink and food in Whare Waka Cafe All in all a great experience.Recommend everyone to visit especially New Zealanders who have not been here for a time. You will be impressed and well informed

    I bet this gets crazy busy in summer season. Great views and on a nice day you could easily spend a couple of hours here soaking it up.

    What a beautiful spot. We were lucky to be there before it was crowded and it was amazing. Large jetty and walking paths, beautiful beach and a cafe...what more can you ask for. Worth a trip out.

    You have the option of a long or short walk. The view was worth the walk. It is mainly uphill on the way up, which can be challenging for older people, but easily 30 mins each way on the short track to lookout point.

    You can enter the Church and it is worth the time. Lovely windows. Interesting graves in the grounds dating back to early 1880s

    We hired the private shuttle for a large group and had an amazing time. Although most of us were beginners, we slowly worked our way up to some challenging trails and managed to get 8+ trails in over 3-4 hours. I would definitely recommend the private shuttle if you want to get as much in as possible. Staff were super friendly and helpful, hope to be back soon.

    Our family trip on the R Tucker Thompson was possibly the most fantastic thing we did all year! The crew are wonderful and very knowledgable. We helped to rig the ship, steer and even climbed to the front of the bow sprit and the rigging - including our 10 year old son and 12 year old daughter who both made it to the yard arms, about 20m up the mast! We stopped at a gorgeous bay and lept from the ship via a swing tied to the yard arm. We went on to collect Kina and then ate them on board after the marvalous lunch provided by the crew. Under sail the ship made nearly no noise. A beautifully tuned and smooth ride. Hats off to the crew and the build of the ship.

    Go, do it, you won't regret!
