Herald in the Māori New Year under the Manuhiri pouwhenua at Tāwharanui Regional Park, hosted by Ngāti Manuhiri.

Commemorate those who have passed, acknowledge those who remain and bless the new year with Karanga, the sounds of ancient karakia and waiata.

The Manuhiri pouwhenua sits within the Ngāti Manuhiri tribal boundaries and is named after their tupuna Manuhiri, who migrated from Kawhia to Tāmaki in the mid-1600s. Following the blessing, there will be a light breakfast, entertainment and the opportunity to learn more about Ngāti Manuhiri history and stories.

There will also be an opportunity to plant a tree in memory of a loved one.
